“Both Jump­start and Auto­by­tel have a long and suc­cess­ful his­to­ry in the dig­i­tal auto­mo­tive space, so it makes per­fect sense for us to work togeth­er to help auto mar­keters sell more cars,” said Nick Mataraz­zo, chief exec­u­tive offi­cer of Jump­start.  “Auto­by­tel is a great addi­tion to our port­fo­lio and fur­ther strength­ens our posi­tion as the high­est per­form­ing, most diverse audi­ence in autos.”

“Jump­start has a great rep­u­ta­tion in the mar­ket­place and has built sol­id auto­mo­tive brand rela­tion­ships that should enhance our abil­i­ty to meet the auto industry’s online mar­ket­ing and adver­tis­ing needs,” said Jeff Coats, pres­i­dent and chief exec­u­tive offi­cer of Auto­by­tel.  “By out­sourc­ing our ad sales func­tion, we are bet­ter able to focus on our core busi­ness of deliv­er­ing high-con­vert­ing leads to our deal­er and man­u­fac­tur­er cus­tomers.  Jump­start suc­cess­ful­ly rep­re­sents adver­tis­ing cam­paigns for every major auto brand, and was a nat­ur­al fit for our busi­ness.  We’re pleased to be work­ing togeth­er to help devel­op lead­ing mar­ket­ing pro­grams.”
