OUR HISTORY

Advertising is the new white noise.  Flashing lights, annoying jingles, loud commercials – it’s so predominant that the everyday consumer simply blocks it out.  It remains in the background.

 

While out on the road, Jeremy and Nick spent a lot of time away from family and friends; and an equal amount of time experiencing less than impressive digital media in cabs, airports and hotels.  As veterans in the advertising industry, they believed there had to be a way to do it better.

 

Inspired by Thomas Edison, the greatest inventor of all time; a man dedicated to creativity and innovation, Jeremy and Nick founded Edison Interactive.  They made a commitment to do things differently.

 

To create an experience that actually mattered.  One that would leave a lasting impression. One that would create a purposeful and connected world.

OUR COMMITMENT

Thomas Edison pioneered the modern world.  Driven by his three essentials to achieve everything that is worthwhile—hard work, sticktoitiveness and common sense—Edison Interactive is delivering solutions that go above and beyond our partner’s expectations.   

 

Our intense commitment to hard work means we will never over promise and underdeliver.  We are constantly evolving and redefining what the digital experience means. As a result, our partners always benefit from unparalleled technology solutions that stand the test of time.   

As Thomas Edison said, “There is no substitute for hard work.”  

We are relentless in our pursuit to achieve and revolutionize digital experiences across the globe.

 

That’s why we’re Edison Interactive.
