Ensighten Founder and CEO Josh Manion Named Silicon Valley Business Journal 40 Under 40 Winner

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2014) - Ensighten, the leading global omni-channel data and tag management provider and company behind the Agile Marketing Platform, today announced its founder and CEO, Josh Manion, was named to Silicon Valley Business Journal's 40 Under 40 list of rising stars in the region. The annual award highlights Silicon Valley's top business leaders across industries under the age of 40.

"Josh is a rare breed of leader. He combines unparalleled strategic skills, deep technical expertise, and strong operational acumen," said Nikitas Koutoupes, Managing Director at Insight Venture Partners, an Ensighten investor. "His success at such a young age is measured as much by the success Ensighten has enjoyed as by the loyalty his people feel towards him. We at Insight feel privileged to be working with Josh and are committed to contributing to his and Ensighten's ongoing success."

As a 40 Under 40 award honoree, Manion has a more than a decade of experience in the marketing technology and tag management space.

"I attribute my professional success and the success of Ensighten to my incredible team. Their knowledge, drive and commitment have allowed us to acquire and retain incredible customers and partners, and to accelerate Ensighten's momentum beyond my expectations." 

In 2014, Ensighten saw record growth, raising a $40 million Series B funding round led by Insight Venture Partners in January. Manion also led the Ensighten team through two acquisitions in 2014, buying TagMan in March and Anametrix in October.
