Yext is the Answers Company.

Our mission is to help organizations answer every question about their business.

We collect and organize content into a Knowledge Graph, then leverage a complementary set of products — including Listings, Pages, Reviews, and Search — to deliver relevant, actionable answers wherever customers, employees, and partners look for information.

For over 15 years, thousands of companies worldwide have used our Answers Platform to create seamless content-driven experiences at scale across search engines, websites, mobile apps, and hundreds of other digital touchpoints.

Every journey starts with a question. Every answer starts with Yext.

Our Story


Howard Lerman and Brian Distelburger establish a new lead generation service, with humble beginnings in a one-room office in Columbus Circle.


The service, now known as Yext, shifts to a pay-per-call model.


After selling the pay-per-call portion of the business, Yext expands its focus on Listings and moves to a new headquarters at NYC's historic Met Life Tower.


Yext (YEXT) joins the $1B club with a successful IPO on the New York Stock Exchange and continues to grow with new offices opening around the world.


Yext rebrands and launches its Search product, transforming the company and dramatically expanding its addressable market.


At 1,200+ employees strong, Yext gains momentum and moves from its longtime headquarters to the Yext Building in NYC's Meatpacking District.


Michael Walrath, Chairman of the Yext Board since 2011, is named CEO. Under new leadership, Yext is positioned for rapid growth and scale as it further develops its innovative Answers Platform.
