We have just been named one of Forbes’ Most Promising Companies. Having our platform and technology recognized by America’s premiere business publication is a huge honor and one we are very proud of.
We’ve had numerous accolades recognizing our successes as of late, most recently being named the Fastest Growing Technology Company in all of New York by Crain’s. 2014 has been an incredible year for LiveIntent. And all of this momentum builds us up for an amazing 2015. This begs the question:
So what did we accomplish in 2014?
We Doubled in Size:
In the past year, we doubled our employees and now count 150 people as part of the LiveIntent family. Just two short years ago, in 2012, we had only 42 employees! We’ve revamped, augmented and redesigned our onboarding, retention, and people development programs to accommodate our exponential growth and our training is state of the art.
We hit new milestones:
In one short year, we’ve:
1. Grown our total revenue by nearly 90%
2. Grown our total number of impressions by nearly 100%
3. Grown our total number of publishers by over 50%
4. Grown our total number of advertisers by over 40%
We launched amazing new products:
By the end of 2014, we launched new game-changing products, including our high-impact ad unit in email (Marquee). Our LiveAudience product (a pioneer similar to Facebook’s famed Atlas offering and Twitter’s Tailored Audience) has been getting strong traction among brands looking to use 1st party data to reach engaged audiences within email in 2015.
We made significant new hires:
In the past year, we filled out our C-Suite with two distinguished tech veterans. We hired our first-ever CMO, Suneet Bhatt. Suneet was formerly the VP of Marketing with Chartbeat. We also hired our first-ever CFO, Gary Deutsch. Their leadership will be instrumental as we continue our growth.
We opened new offices abroad and at home:
LiveIntent began its international expansion, opening a UK office to serve the UK and EU market. Simultaneously, 2014 saw LiveIntent’s headquarters move to beautiful new offices in New York’s Tribeca district.
All of these accomplishments lead to:
What does 2015 hold for LiveIntent?
Simple: More amazing.
We are so well positioned for 2015 it’s incredible. We truly sit at the crossroads of the future of advertising and technology. Every day, we read stories about how platforms like Facebook Atlas and One by AOL and even innovations from companies like Criteo focus on what we embraced when we started four years ago: That marketing is about people, not pixels. Our platform is the perfect fit for the ecosystem that exists in 2015 and beyond!
In 2015, we’re putting new emphasis on refining and improving our API and adopting a strategy that promotes more integration. Our data-driven solutions and ability to empower brands, advertisers and publishers to reach people where they are present and paying attention, in their email, will continue to be the driving force behind our incredible growth.
With all of this wind in our sails, we’re ready to make even more progress and accomplish new and exciting things! I’m excited to see what 2015 brings all of us and I couldn’t be prouder of the amazing LiveIntenters who make this possible every day!
