“We play in the data analytics sector,” Gerber said. “Some of our recent acquisitions are instructive of what we will do in the future.”
In 2013, the company acquired Adchemy’s lead-generation and performance-marketing business, Actions. And last year, Zeta snapped up marketing automation platform ClickSquared for an undisclosed sum. Founded in 2007, Zeta had raised $80 million before this round of financing, according to CrunchBase.
Zeta’s main offering is a marketing platform called ZetaHub, which pools marketing data that Zeta manages on behalf of its clients together with data from Zeta’s propriety marketing database. Marketers can use the hub as a self-serve product or as a managed service, and Gerber said the majority of Zeta’s clients opt for either full or partial managed services.
Zeta has nearly 600 employees, up from about 500 one year ago. The company is headquartered in New York with a second US office in Silicon Valley. It also has offices in London and Bristol in the UK, as well as in Banjara Hills, India.
Zeta will devote some of the new funds to grow its core markets, the US and the UK.
“Our horizon is to double the business again,” Gerber said. “We don’t have a road map to an IPO, and we don’t have a time frame for any type of exit.”
