April was a very exciting month for us here at Signpost. As you know, we announced a ton of major updates to our merchant platform, including a full suite of promotional and reporting tools to help merchants better run their online marketing campaigns.

Well, we’re thrilled to say that we’re starting out the month of May with an even bigger bang! As you may have seen we just announced an additional $3.75 million in funding, led by Spark Capital. That’s right, more money in the bank to help us continue growing our company and expanding our reach into new markets.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. We’d also like to welcome Chris DePatria (AOL Patch’s former head of sales) to our team! Chris will be joining us as the VP of revenue, responsible for our sales operation and revenue strategy, and overseeing and scaling the company’s sales force.

This is going to be a very exciting month for us and we look forward to continue sharing with the Signpost community, more about what’s in store.

So, a HUGE thank you to Spark Capital for their continued interest in the company, and welcome aboard, Chris! The entire team at Signpost is excited to have you join us.
