YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) connects people with successful young chief executives in a global network unlike any other. Founded in 1950 in New York City by a young president named Ray Hickok, the organization unites approximately 20,000 business leaders in more than 120 countries around a shared mission: Better Leaders Through Education and Idea Exchange. A great deal has changed since YPO’s founding but certain things have remained the same: the value of a peer network and trusted mentors, the importance of ongoing education, and the need for a “safe haven” where issues can be aired in an environment of confidentiality. Over the past six decades, YPO has maintained its core commitment to these ideals while embracing change with each successive generation of young business leaders.

Velti is the leading global marketing platform, connecting brands with consumers around the world. We deliver technology and services that enable companies to engage with and reach their consumers through innovative mobile marketing and advertising efforts. Our mGage platform is available for agencies and companies ready for a set of self-service based tools that consolidate media management, simplify mobile asset production, and deliver highly engaging messaging campaigns. For those who want professional assistance in achieving mobile goals, Velti's managed services organization offers expert help in developing strategies, programs, and hosting services to support mobile initiatives. Velti was founded over 11 years ago to develop and execute highly interactive campaigns with subscribers for mobile operators. Long before mobile was a major force, our founders had a vision for changing how companies initiate, develop, and deliver advertising and marketing initiatives across the mobile channel. More than a decade later, our focus and reach have expanded dramatically. As the largest mobile marketing provider listed on Nasdaq, Velti reported $189.2MM revenue for fiscal year 2011. The Velti team now has a global footprint in 15+ countries, supporting Fortune 500 companies around the world. Over the years, Velti has extended its global leadership position through the strategic acquisition of companies whose technologies offer synergies to the mGage platform. In 2010, Velti acquired Media Cannon, a developer of mobile advertising tools and technology, and Mobclix, a mobile ad exchange network. In 2011, Velti acquired Mobile Interactive Group (MIG), the UK's largest mobile marketing company, and also Air2Web, a leading provider of mobile customer relationship management (mCRM) solutions for consumer brands in the United States and India. As of January 2012, Velti completed its acquisition of CASEE, the largest mobile advertising exchange in China.
