John Duffy

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

John Duffy is a visionary who, over his 25 years as an entrepreneur, has maintained a steadfast belief that it should be easy for brands to use technology to connect with consumers in meaningful ways. Out of that simple belief, 3Cinteractive (3C) was born. In the early days of mobile, when competitors were focusing on selling wallpapers and ringtones, John proved himself an independent thinker. He focused 3C on finding ways to help brands use mobile to drive relevant engagement at the consumer’s moment of need that delivered measurable business results.

Today, using a blend of expertise and technology, 3C empowers leading brands and retailers to develop deeper, more valuable relationships with their consumers through the implementation of highly effective mobile marketing solutions.

As an innovator and evangelist of mobile, John is a sought-after expert and speaker on topics including mobile marketing and entrepreneurship. He has been featured in publications including The New York Times and Forbes and appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box, MSNBC and various other programs.

In recognition for leading 3C to the forefront of its industry, John has been honored with numerous awards including Ernst & Young’s “Entrepreneur of The Year” award, South Florida Business Journal’s “Ultimate CEO,” Sun Sentinel’s “Excalibur Award,” and has been named to Irish America magazine’s “Business 100” list of the best leaders of Irish descent. He also serves on the board of the Dan Marino Foundation and supports various programs that facilitate the development of young entrepreneurs.
