Today, we are excited to announce a step forward in our mission to get perfect location information in every hand, everywhere: we are inviting select partners to participate in the Yext Global Partner Programme.
Through this programme, Yext will work with select directory publishers across the world to bring a localised version of Yext’s Integrated GeoMarketing Software to their clients as a solution for digital presence management.
“Directory publishers around the world are working on their digital transformations, and Presence Management is a key product,” said Howard Lerman, Yext Co-Founder & CEO. “At Yext we believe that mobile and IOT will enable locations to become ‘smart’ and today’s marketers have a revolutionary opportunity to connect to customers based on where they are. The Global Partner Programme is the first step in making this vision a reality for businesses and customers all over the world.”
To spearhead Yext’s international expansion, we are excited to announce that Luis Baptista-Coelho has joined the Yext team as VP International Partnerships. Before Yext, Luis was CEO of NDrive Navigation Systems, where he transformed the company into a global business in 30+ countries. Luis brings nearly 20 years of experience in management in the IT industry across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Luis holds a European MBA (ESCP Europe: Paris-Oxford-Berlin) and Executive Educations at Harvard Business School and Columbia Business School.
“93% of business still happens in stores and the Yext technology uniquely enables marketers to use online tools for those offline locations, said Luis Baptista-Coelho, Yext VP International Partnerships. “This fundamentally changes the way businesses connect with their customers – and I’m excited to bring it to international businesses.”
With the GeoMarketing Cloud, Yext helps more than 350,000 business locations connect with the consumers around them. To learn more about Yext visit www.yext.com, for more information about joining the Global Partner Programme email firstname.lastname@example.org.
