Previously, he was EVP for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) where he oversaw the live events, marketing, international, and pay-per-view businesses. Schneider joins Logitix’s current board advisors, and industry veterans, Danielle Maged and Kraig Fox.
Ingram comes to Logitix after serving seven years as CFO at TractManager, a SaaS provider for insights and compliance in the healthcare sector. During his time at TractManager, he led several initiatives resulting in four-time revenue growth. Ingram previously spent nine years at PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

Our industry is ready for evolution and innovation, and we look forward to bringing our platform and services to our partners.”
