March 16, 2015: MediaBeacon is excited to be joining the Esko/Danaher family of businesses. We will continue to operate as a standalone company and provide the industry-leading DAM solution for all markets. Jason Bright, whose vision and leadership have made the company what it is today, will continue to help chart the course for MediaBeacon’s next evolution as CTO and technical visionary. As part of this acquisition, Brett Robertson will be joining the team as the General Manager for MediaBeacon.
Our customers can look forward to a deepening of service and tools around media and content-rich DAM solutions, as well as an expansion of what we can offer. Through this relationship, MediaBeacon will now be able to leverage Esko’s global scale, structure, process, and market access. Meanwhile Esko will get access to a world-class DAM platform.
Perhaps most exciting is Esko and Danaher’s long history of maintaining the independence and agility of companies they acquire, such as Pantone, X-Rite, Leica, Fluke, etc. while helping them transition to their next level of professional and global development. We look forward to what the future holds for MediaBeacon as the most recent addition to this family of successful global companies.Official press release
