My name is Andrew Barrett. I’m Director of ISP Relations & Deliverability for a North Carolina-based e-mail service provider. I’m also currently serving as co-chair of the Senders’ special interest group at MAAWG, an important industry association in my line of work.
A very long time ago, I was the Legislative Coordinator for one of the first anti-spam coalitions among senders, recipients, and ISPs working to pass meaningful, sane anti-spam legislation.
A somewhat less longer time ago, I worked very briefly as Sr. Director of Operations for the world’s first subscription-based spam blocking service.
Not such a long time ago, I was Executive Director for a 501(c)(3) anti-spam consumer watchdog group.
