Happy (Fiscal) New Year 2019!
And that’s another year for the books! Fiscal year, that is.
While our buddies in the accounting division here at ModSquad are ringing in the new year and working diligently to close out the books on FY 2018, we thought it would be a great opportunity to page through the ledger of time to review the year that was. The ModSquad crew at large has had a busy 12 months, and we’ve been chronicling it all on the blog.
Even with four operation centers and team members around the globe, we still have that itch to get out there and spread the Mod word. We did that this year by setting up shop and taking part in conferences across two continents. In the U.S., we hit the Big Apple at Zendesk’s Relate Live, then jumped down south for SXSW and PAX South. On the west coast, we jammed at E3, Dreamforce, and GDC, and even hit Vegas for Shoptalk. Not to be outdone, our European team mates made a splash at their own Shoptalk Europe event in Copenhagen.
In June, Mike Pinkerton hit the bright lights of Manhattan to pick up more hardware for our overcrowded awards shelf, at the US-Ireland Top 50 New York-New Belfast Conference.
We celebrated the World Cup with a friendly worldwide competition. And we cheered on our ModSquad teams as they participated in the annual 24-hour Extra Life fundraising event and the four-day Extra Life United gathering in Florida.
In the past year, we proudly introduced the world at large to many of the powerhouse people that make our company as strong as it is, from our Meet the Mods video to our ongoing Mod of the Month feature to our Project Managers of the Quarter. We profiled Directors Gina Miller and Izzy Neis and Account Managers Monica Armstrong and Stephen Dunne. And we gave a warm welcome to our new VP of People Operations, Kristyn DeRaffele.
Clearly, Kristyn’s been on a tear, as we’ve grown our Mod Network by 80% in the year since she’s been on board. We’ve learned a lot about the Mods this past year, from where they like to vacation and spend their down time to what they’ve been reading, their hobbies… even their dogs!
Those Mods sure have their work cut out for them, as we added 90 new accounts, launched 229 new engagements, and grew revenue 30% year over year. Our client roster was already rocking (check out highlights from cool brands Tourism Ireland and Flybrix). Now, we’re stoked to add some great brands to the mix, including Zynga, Kid & Coe, Razor, and Funko (can we have Pop! figurines of our exec team, please?). Plus, it was a real kick seeing client Brilliant Pad land a deal on Shark Tank.
All in all, it was another fast-paced, amazing year here at ModSquad. We’ve got really cool things coming down the pike, which you’ll be reading about here on the blog. Cheers to our extraordinary team and here’s to a fantastic FY 2019.
