042: IMA Founder and Chairman Sinan Kanatsiz on the IMA and IMPACT15


sinanSinan Kanatsiz (@SinanKanatsiz) is Founder and Chairman of the Internet Marketing Association in addition to his role as CEO of KOMM. Sinan holds a B.A in Communications, with an emphasis in Computer Science and Public Relations as well as a dual Master’s degree in Human Resources and Organizational Leadership from Chapman University. He is also Founder of Generation NeXt and member of the New Majority.


The Internet Marketing Association (@IMA_Network) is a professional organization that, since its inception in 2001, has accrued a global membership in various fields including sales, marketing, business ownership, programming and creative development. Sinan started IMA with four key values as a foundation for success in today’s highly competitive business environment: integrity, communication, professionalism and education. Membership is free. Join!


“The general idea of the IMA was to bring professionals like us together in a way that provoked thought-leadership, networking, business experiences, and life experiences.”


Our Chairman and Founder sits down with Dominick to share insights on the inception of the IMA (back in 2001!), how it is impacting business globally today (listen for story of most recent member in Nigeria), and the exciting things we can expect from the much-anticipated IMPACT15 next month at the Aria in Las Vegas.
