John Pino John Pino, Pow Wow Smart
Board of Advisors
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. — Pow Wow Smart, a leading provider of turn-key solutions and data aggregation for ground transportation in connection with meetings and events, and miRide, the on-demand chauffeur-driven application/service for businesses and professionals, recently announced the appointment of John Pino to their Board of Advisors.

Pino is a long-time industry veteran with a number of credits in his career, including CEO of meeting management company McGettigan Partners, founder and CEO of SaaS firm StarCite, and founder and CEO of online meeting and event community i-Meet, which is his current industry focus.

"Innovation drives needed solutions," said Pino, "and I believe that getting a handle on costs around ground transportation may be one of the last major areas of spend that companies need to complete their SMMP initiatives. It's been elusive to date, but watch this company and their efforts. The technology, and the professional services around it, is poised to make a major impact on the industry, and I'm very happy to be a part of it."

"We're excited to have John working with our team and investors," said Evan Michaels, CEO and co-founder of Pow Wow Smart and miRide. "We've come a long way in establishing our technology as an important tool for businesses desiring to view ground transportation as a spend management category. Having John work with us at a strategic level brings additional knowledge and experience to help us effectively lead in this space, and we're thrilled to have him on our team."

Pow Wow Smart has a value proposition that promises to delve into an area that has long been avoided due to its complexity and high labor requirement. With patented technology that improves the process of mapping manifests to vehicle utilization, their approach focuses on eliminating errors, and saving time and money by creating direct relationships with reputable companies that own their vehicles. And by adding miRide to the equation, individual rides in connection with events can be coordinated and master-billed to get a complete view of costs.
