While at Beyond, he built from scratch an e-commerce platform and one of the first online app stores.

“Many older adults in the United States today live in isolation with substandard and hard-to-use technology solutions,” Pettit said. “LogicMark’s history of using technology to make help affordable and available is a mission I hope to build on. I want to help LogicMark build the Care Economy technology platform and make sure people get the right care they need, based on their life stage.”
