RESEARCH STRATEGY

In order to provide a company overview for ThreeSixty Group, our research team reviewed the company's LinkedIn profile, business profiles on pages like Crunchbase, Hoovers and Bloomberg, and news stories and press releases on the company and its subsidiaries. We then reviewed the LinkedIn profiles of the listed executives to identify their current and former professional roles. No person by the name of Ray Wasaki that is associated with ThreeSixty or any of its subsidiaries was found. However, we found the profile or Ray Wysocki, who is currently a partner with Merch Source and has been since 2003. Due to the similarity of the names and the lack of any information to indicate there is anyone by the name of Ray Wasaki associated with ThreeSixty, we assumed that Ray Wysocki was the target executive and provided information on him instead. We searched for the executives email addresses using LinkedIn, the company websites of the subsidiaries they are associated with and email finder sites such as Rocket Reach, Hunter.io and ZoomInfo. The only verified email address found was for Adam Gromfin. For the other three executives, we provided the verified personal email address or likely professional email address that was identified in our search. Because the info available on Rocket Reach requires login, we provided screenshots of the information pulled from this source in a Google Document.
