“With the continued explosion of mobile apps and the role of mobile devices as the key touchpoint for brands to maximize customer loyalty and lifetime value, it’s imperative that brands use powerful and coordinated multi-channel engagement tools to connect with their customers at all times and through all digital channels,” said George Garrick, CEO of Leanplum. “Leanplum is a best-in-class solution that enables brands to engage with their customers in a relevant and personalized manner. As Leanplum continues to grow, I’m excited to oversee its expansion into additional global markets and an expanding total available market (TAM) while strengthening relationships with our existing customers and partners.”
Over two billion people used an app or website running Leanplum last year which means that the company facilitated 150 billion multi-channel messages.
