Now is the time when we look back and reflect upon all the changes that have taken place in our lives over the last year. Inevitably some of the changes are good while others are not, but all lead to growth in the end.
When I look back at the year that Adlucent has had, I can’t help but note how much we’ve grown. We’ve grown our headcount, revenue, client base, and technology. 2012 has been a great year for Adlucent and we’ve learned so much. We are all looking forward to the exciting things that lie ahead.
