Earlier today, we announced that our Pardot team was named Atlanta’s “Best Workplace” for the second consecutive year in the small business category of the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s “Top 100 Workplaces” program. This is awesome - an outstanding honor and testament to the culture that Adam Blitzer and the team have built at Pardot.
Celebrating and cultivating company culture has always been a cornerstone of ExactTarget. This recognition is particularly special because the award was based on anonymous employee engagement surveys conducted in December - two months after ExactTarget acquired...Read More »

Every year, we develop a theme to guide our company. 2012 was the year of "Inspiration" -- and it certainly delivered. In March, we were so fortunate to complete one of the largest SaaS IPOs in history. Ringing the opening bell on the floor on the New York Stock Exchange was an incredible moment and milestone for our company. Going public was the culmination of twelve years of extraordinary hard work (and great fun) by so many amazing people -- and most importantly, provided us with a springboard to more product innovation, strategic acquisitions, global expansion and focus on client success.
We...Read More »

Such an exciting day as Facebook completed their record-setting IPO. The buzz this morning brought back so many amazing memories from our IPO on March 22nd (including our first interview as a public company on CNBC). I have been so busy over the last 60 days that I haven't had an opportunity to share reflections on my blog. Here are a few...
The entire process - from drafting the S1 to the roadshow to ringing the bell on the New York Stock Exchange (and live simulcasting the event to all of our employees around the globe) was an extraordinary experience. The NYSE were terrific partners -...Read More »

What an experience yesterday - I was so honored to join President Obama and many business and government leaders in the Rose Garden of the White House for the signing of the JOBS (Jumpstart our Business Startups) Act. This important legislation, which passed on the day we became a public company, paves the way for entrepreneurs to gain access to new capital to fuel job-creating innovation and growth.
Our friend and venture investor Kate Mitchell (Scale Venture Partners) led the IPO Task Force comprised of academics, investors and executives. ExactTarget’s Chief Administrative Officer Traci...Read More »

Consumers are interacting with brands in real time across email, mobile, social media and the Web – often from the phone they carry in their purse or pocket. It’s a new real-time reality that creates tremendous opportunity for brands to engage, yet many still fall short – siloing interactions to online and offline teams and delivering brand experiences that are far from ideal.
The best minds in marketing have joined us at Connections 2011 to empower marketers with new ideas, innovations and products to meet the needs of today’s hyperconnected consumer. From eMarketer’s Geoff Ramsey to...Read More »

ExactTarget is once again a Best Place to Work in Indiana for the fourth consecutive year! We had our best finish ever, moving up from 7th place in 2009 to 3rd place this year. It’s a fantastic accomplishment, and one that is incredibly special to me, as it’s an award based largely on the results of anonymous employee surveys that ask questions on everything from job satisfaction to culture.
We’re committed to continue fueling the passion, energy and results-focused entrepreneurial spirit that made ExactTarget the company it is today – no matter how big we become or how far our global reach...Read More »
