Klick CEO Named One of Canada's Top 40 Under 40

Leerom Segal Honoured as One of the Country's Best and Brightest

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 28, 2011) - Klick, a leading digital marketing, technology and learning agency, is pleased to announce that Leerom Segal, President & Chief Executive Officer, has been named a recipient of Canada's Top 40 Under 40™ for 2010, at just 31 years old.

Commenting on the achievement, Leerom Segal said: "It's a wonderful honour to stand shoulder to shoulder with such a distinguished group of peers, but the success of Klick is due to the hard work and brilliant efforts of everyone at Klick – from my business partners, to the leadership team, through each and every member of our extraordinary team".

Leerom said that even more exciting than being Canada's largest digital marketing agency and the historical growth trajectory of Klick, is what lies ahead: "We are living in an era of precision and Klick is built for the digital age. We're on the cusp of radical changes in the media landscape and we're thrilled about how these will accelerate the opportunities ahead."

As President and Chief Executive Officer of Klick, Leerom has presided over a tremendous period of achievement and recognition. Most recently, Leerom was invited to join the World Economic Forum's Community of Global Growth Companies; and Klick has been thrice named as one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies, repeatedly listed as one of North America's fastest growing technology firms and ranked as one of the Best Employers in the Greater Toronto Area for the second year in a row.

Leerom has played a pivotal role in leveraging Klick's success as it has expanded from a core industry focus servicing pharmaceutical manufacturers, such as Pfizer, to also include major players from other sectors across North America. This has led to the addition of clients including Wal-Mart, MillerCoors, Ford Motor Company and Canadian Tire being added to an already impressive list that includes Sony, Rogers, Hydro One, and United Healthcare Group.

In addition to corporate commitments, Klick also plays an active role in the community, has engaged in an assortment of charitable activities, and in 2008 established the Klick Foundation – an organization dedicated to e-enabling non-profit institutions.

Canada's Top 40 Under 40™ is a prestigious national award program, which annually honours 40 Canadians in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors under the age of 40. Leerom and his peers were selected from over 1,000 nominees by an independent Advisory Board, comprised of 25 business leaders from across Canada, and were chosen on five key criteria: vision and leadership; innovation and achievement; impact; community involvement and contribution; and strategy for growth.

Now in its sixteenth year, Canada's Top 40 Under 40™ is managed by founding sponsor, The Caldwell Partners International and supported by national sponsors The Globe and Mail and WestJet.
