NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sailthru, the leading Customer Retention Cloud for the world's top retail and media companies, today announced it ranked number 244 on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. Sailthru's customer base now includes more than 400 retailers and publishers and between 2012 and 2015 revenue grew 297 percent.
Sailthru's chief executive officer, Neil Lustig, credits Sailthru's continued growth to its ability to harness the power of customer data and insights to drive growth for customers such as JustFab and Betabrand, and global publishers, including The Economist and SheKnows media. "Our commitment to data science has been a critical component in Sailthru's growth, as well as our advantage. We're arming retailers and publishers with business insights and working together to create opportunities in innovative ways that cannot be competitively matched," said Lustig. "Sailthru's investment in solutions based on market need, for example, the recent acquisition of mobile marketing automation platform Carnival.io, demonstrates our approach to enable marketers to deliver a more connected and seamless personalized experience across all digital channels." In addition to revenue growth, in the past year Sailthru has announced the addition of seasoned leaders to their C-Suite, such as Guy Horrocks, GM of mobile, Tom Janofsky, EVP of engineering and Andy Leaver, EVP of worldwide sales. The company continues to expand its footprint across North America and into the EMEA region and total employee base has more than doubled since 2011.
