Company growth, new corporate headquarters, and professional industry recognition round out Fluent’s highlights for the year

NEW YORK, April 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fluent, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLNT), a leading data-driven performance marketing company, announced today that it has been invited to ring the NASDAQ Stock Market closing bell on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. ET to commemorate its first year as a stand-alone public company.

“It’s an honor for us to ring the NASDAQ closing bell after such a momentous year,” said Ryan Schulke, CEO of Fluent. “I’m extremely proud of everything we’ve accomplished, especially when it comes to internal growth and industry acknowledgement. I look forward to continuing to make an impact for our shareholders, clients and employees as we head into our second year as a stand-alone company and to pushing the digital marketing industry forward.”

Fluent reported revenue of $250.3 million in 2018, an increase of 18% over 2017. Since becoming a stand-alone public company in March 2018, Fluent has grown its executive team, including the appointment of Tamara Alesi who was recently brought on as Senior Vice President of Media Strategy.

“The appointment of Tam, as well as a number of other executives from this past year, has been instrumental in our commitment to the continued growth and profitability of our brand,” Schulke said. “We are thrilled to have recently welcomed such a large number of valuable employees to the Fluent team, and I’m looking forward to everyone’s support in helping to advance Fluent’s differentiated position as a data-first performance engine focused on real-world outcomes.”

The addition of Ms. Alesi to the executive leadership team at Fluent, as well as other notable hires Alex Mandel as Chief Financial Officer, Andrea Haldeman as Senior Vice President of Sales and Brian Hogan as President of Fluent Programmatic, marks the next chapter of the organization’s growth.

Furthermore, the Company recently moved into its new corporate headquarters at 300 Vesey Street, 9th Floor, New York, NY 10282 to accommodate Fluent’s increased headcount. The Company relocated its New York office from its previous 26,000 sq. ft. space to a 43,000 sq. ft. space that better reflects Fluent’s culture as a disruptive performance marketing company and was designed to increase collaboration and efficiencies across the organization.

In addition to expanding its footprint, this past year has also been one of recognition for Fluent. The Company was recently ranked as the No. 8 fastest growing mobile app traffic source in North America, per the latest AppsFlyer Performance Index; awarded Marketing EDGE’s 2018 Corporate Disruptor Award for the creation and development of teaching materials that contributed to ensuring the market-readiness of college and university-level students; and was named one of Crain’s Best Places to Work in NYC 2018.
