Over 18 million unique monthly users across 500 wholly owned
and operated websites in 8 languages puts Populis in a unique position among
online media companies. Double digit revenue growth every year for the past 5
years, culminating in multiple award wins (Media Momentum, Red Herring 100)
and the enviable position as European leader in content on demand, GoAdv's
rebrand to Populis will increase its visibility with an easily recognizable
name and identity, while strengthening its space in an increasingly
competitive market sector.
Luca Ascani, Chairman of Populis, said, "Thanks to the
company's phenomenal growth and innovation in the online content space we
arrived at a point where our name and brand no longer mirrored our core
activities or vision. We are a dynamic and evolving organisation constantly
adapting to market conditions and at the forefront of a fast paced digital
sector. The rebrand to Populis marks a new era for us and we are looking
forward to continued success and expansion under our new identity."
Salvatore Esposito, CEO of Populis, said, "In order to compete
seriously in a global marketplace we needed a brand that reflected our
strengths and positioned us correctly. With a talented, international and
multilingual team of writers, producers, marketers and management our
identity had to present the company in simple yet effective way. We are
delighted to announce our rebrand to Populis and are confident that the move
will further support our growth plans for the future."
