Getting perfect location information into every hand requires touching tens of millions of small businesses globally. While Yext sells its products directly, we work with over 1,000 digital agencies, social media consultants, and local SEOs who offer a complete Small Business marketing solution. Our focus on one use case – syncing location info everywhere – means that our partners can bring an efficient and reliable updating engine to their own customers.
Today we are pleased to announce that Christian Ward has joined Yext as EVP of Partnerships to run these important partnerships. Most recently Christian served as Chief Data Officer of InfoGroup, and prior to that, as head of content innovation at Thomson Reuters. Like all Yextlings, Christian is a data product junkie. He understands unique product, data, and operational challenges faced by our partners looking to manage location data for their own customers. We're delighted to welcome him aboard.
Our business wouldn't be possible without our partners. We look forward to continuing to bring our partners the most innovative location information technology on the planet.
