WorthPoint Corporation, the largest online resource for researching, valuing, and preserving antiques, art, and collectibles, announced today that Scott Thomas has joined the company as vice president of marketing.
Thomas brings to WorthPoint 15 years of marketing and technology experience on a global scale.
