Growth Blog: AKF Turns 10 – And It’s Still Not About the Tech
Client success is our #1 priority.
We first met AKF in 2010 when they did the tech due diligence for a private equity firm that wanted to invest in eMarketer. I was so impressed with AKF's knowledge, thoroughness, and no BS approach, that I continued to bring them back in to do annual tech reviews. In late 2014, we became convinced that it was time for a new approach to our infrastructure and software development to meet the needs of our fast-growing client base. It was also apparent that we lacked the leadership skills and experience to get the job done. AKF served as our virtual CTO for about 8 months and helped us make huge improvements in virtually every area related to IT and engineering. Just as important, they helped us identify the people on our team who could move into leadership positions. Marty, Mike and the entire AKF team were terrific. We'd never have been able to grow our user base tenfold without them.
