Today, I’m very excited to announce that AdRoll has been named the #1 fastest-growing private company in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Business Times in their 2012 ‘Fast 100’ listing.
I didn’t think this year could get any better following our Inc. 500 designation in August, but this is another huge honor for our team, especially considering the many phenomenal companies in the Bay Area. Just steps from ShangRolla, our 12,000 sq. ft headquarters located in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco, you’ll find promising startups led by talented teams. With activities and programs like our monthly SOMA Squad event and sponsored Meetups, we’re continually working to engage our friends, partners, and customers in the community, and to have a bit of fun away from our computers.
We really couldn’t have achieved our 5,516.3% growth, based off of 2009 to 2011 revenue numbers, without our hardworking team of ‘Rollers and our loyal customers, who inspire us to build the best products we can to drive the most value for them. We continue to invest heavily in our platform, data infrastructure and new products.
For example, since our participation in the Facebook Exchange (FBX) Beta Program and its launch, we’ve been hard at work creating tools that enable advertisers to take full advantage of this powerful new inventory. Our LiquidAds on FBX product enables advertisers to quickly and easily set up personalized, dynamic ads on Facebook. Initial results have shown an average 102% CTR over standard FBX ads. We’ll also be rolling out new high performance products in mobile, video and social.
Patrick closes the article with my quote, “I love to learn things, and I love to build things, and I love to work with great people”. I’m incredibly fortunate to get to do all three every day at AdRoll. We’re growing rapidly and constantly on the lookout for uber-smart, hardworking, and fun people.
