A Year of Leaps and Bounds
2013 was an incredible year at Altitude Digital and we are truly grateful for loyal customers and partners that made it all possible. We expanded our management team, opened offices in San Francisco and New York, grew revenue by 100% and launched our entirely new Supply Side Platform, Altitude ARENA.
Product Premiere. In Q4 we launched our entirely redesigned Supply Side Platform, Altitude ARENATM. ARENA is built to optimize both video and display with an open competition engine that gives publishers apples-to-apples comparison across all demand sources. An extra special thanks to our SSP clients who have helped us fine tune the technology into what we will believe is the future of Altitude Digital. With an average revenue lift of 30%, we think you will feel the same!
Revenue Ramp. We continued our rapid growth in 2013 with a 100% revenue increase and continued profitability.
The Right Team We expanded our executive team this year including adding, John Krosky as the VP of Sales, Justin Manes as the VP of Product, Cordell BaanHofmann VP of Strategic Partnerships and Joe Grover as our Chief Marketing Officer.
From Coast-to-Coast. We opened our office in San Francisco with product and sales and have increased our East Coast presence with a sales office in New York City. We also expanded our agency sales team with an office in Utah.
Brick and Mortar. We moved into our new headquarters in Downtown Denver. This historic brick building was first built in 1923 and has a history of music, clubs and most importantly, successful startups!
- Altitude Digital listed as #54 on the Inc500 for the second consecutive year (yes, we were #54 last year too). That’s 3-year growth of 5,162%!

Altitude ad:tech San Francisco. Drinks and dinner were on us at the Altitude Digital party, which was held at the notorious Supperclub in San Francisco. There were performances a-plenty including a contortionist and an Altitude Digital dance off ending with a gravity-defying table jump! It’s important to note, no employees or guests were hurt during the event.
Altitude Digital Grand Opening. We celebrated the grand opening of our new headquarters overlooking beautiful Downtown Denver (come visit us!). With a grand opening rooftop party, we welcomed nationally acclaimed 40 oz. to Freedom and one of Denver’s top local band. After all, no Altitude Digital party is complete without a little Rock n’ Roll! View the Photos
