NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- Leading full-service ad serving technology company Flashtalking announced plans to expand its operations, with the opening of several new offices in 2015, spanning Europe. The expansion coincides with its immediate relocation to larger offices in New York City and the hiring of top ad tech marketer Monika Belur as Vice President of Marketing. Belur joined the management team in January 2015 to elevate and steward the company's marketing efforts during a period of pronounced growth.
"Our company has been delivering results for a long list of brand and agency clients for nearly a decade," said Paul Cunningham, Flashtalking CEO and Founder. "We've been quietly growing by developing and deepening our existing relationships through best-in-class service. We're unique in the space in that we truly cover all aspects of the equation -- from serving to measurement and analysis -- bringing a welcome level of support to our clients. The additional offices will help us continue to build upon this success worldwide."
The Flashtalking client list has grown significantly over the past year, onboarding some of the world's largest brands, including AllState, U.S. Cellular and Walmart, who uses Flashtalking as its sole mobile ad server.
Partner integration has been key to the company's growth. Flashtalking's partnership roster has expanded rapidly, establishing integrations needed for clients to seamlessly execute marketing campaigns. These include DMP partners such as Adobe, DSP partners like MediaMath, and partners such as Atlas, who are leveraging Flashtalking's dynamic creative, rich media and mobile capabilities.
This spring, Flashtalking will move its New York City offices to 142 West 36th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue. The company will take the entire 10th floor of a 1920s 17-story building as it continues to grow its East Coast regional and overall global business.
