Why Bridgevine?

Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, Bridgevine provides customer acquisition and retention solutions for enterprise customers.

Bridgevine’s software-as-a-service (“SaaS”)-based platform is used by leading companies in communications, entertainment, home security and energy resulting in more than 50 million consumer interactions annually.

Barclays PLC estimates that the online lead generation/e-mail marketing market is expected to grow from $1.8 billion in 2012 to $2.0 billion in 2016. In addition, the market for online search-related marketing is estimated to grow from $17.7 billion in 2012 to $29.9 billion in 2016.

During the first quarter of 2015, Bridgevine appointed Brad Mohs as Chief Technology Officer. Mr. Mohs brings more than 30 years of experience managing several of the largest and fastest growing e-commerce and technology-enabled firms in the U.S. Mr. Mohs will lead Bridgevine’s technology organization and will be responsible for innovating, developing and enhancing the company’s suite of products and services. In addition, Mr. Mohs will help expand Bridgevine’s customer acquisition solutions around utility customer relationship management, retail and e-tail channels, call center cross-sell, social and mobile platforms. Bridgevine has successfully completed all key steps in the integration of Acceller, which was acquired in June 2014. The combined company offers the largest and most advanced customer acquisition and retention platform in the marketplace, contributing to more than $2.3 billion in partners’ annual recurring revenue.

Safeguard’s business model was validated with our acquisition of Acceller. The ability to tap into experts on the Safeguard team was invaluable in our M&A process. Safeguard’s motto of providing capital and operational support rings true, along with moral support, strategic insight, wise counsel and detailed management. I’ve heard a lot about—and now have personal experience with—Safeguard’s powerful and highly impactful platform.
