Signal Turns Six

April 15, 2016

This week, Signal celebrated its sixth anniversary. At this exciting milestone, employees and leaders alike are thrilled to call Signal an international company, with expanding offices in London, Tokyo, Sydney, Sao Paolo and its global headquarters in Chicago.

What began as a tag management company run by just six people is now a global leader in real-time, people-based marketing, with more than 150 employees and counting – by year end, Signal expects to have more than 200 talented people on its team.

“Six years ago, I had no idea we would be where we are today, and I am thrilled to spend another six years with the people who do the work to make Signal successful,” said CEO and co-founder Mike Sands.

As Signal moves deeper into the addressable media space, the company is rapidly investing in new talent that will make its vision a reality: to help marketers overcome the challenges presented by an increasingly cross-channel, always-on world.

“I have intense pride in the fact we have built such a quality team both here in Chicago and worldwide,” CTO and co-founder Eric Lunt added.

Lunt’s pride is not unfounded. With a client list that includes Gap, Allstate, Kraft Heinz and Yahoo Japan and many more, Signal was ranked 11th on Deloitte’s list of fastest-growing North American tech companies in 2015. That same year, the company’s Founder, Marc Kiven, and co-founders Sands and Lunt, received the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2015 Award in the technology category.

“I’m incredibly proud of our team here at Signal and amazed at what we’ve been able to accomplish in the last six-plus years. As I reflect back, I want to take this time to thank everyone who has helped make Signal the great company that it has become…thank you,” Kiven exclaimed.

Signal looks forward to a bright future for the company, its clients and its amazing employees.
