From a small company to industry leader
What is the history of Merkle? Well, Merkle has grown from a small American data processing company acquired in 1988 by a visionary young entrepreneur into an industry-leading performance marketing company with more than 14,000 people worldwide.
Growth and expansion have always been watchwords — not only for Merkle’s own business ambitions, but even more importantly in terms of our clients. We have reached our market-leading status through years of tenacious focus on organic growth, revered talent acquisition, and smart corporate acquisitions.
We are constantly evolving Merkle's value proposition and expanding our core competencies in anticipation of marketplace changes. Our company has experienced double-digit annual growth over the past three decades, with 2020 revenue of $1.2 billion.
