Ogden, UT (September 9, 2019) – MarketStar, a Wasatch Group company, announced it has acquired Product2Market, a leading European inside sales and sales development agency, that enables growth organizations to drive revenues. The acquisition pairs two leading sales acceleration companies, MarketStar and Product2Market, to form the global leader in outsourced sales solutions.
Established in 2010 and headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, Product2Market has grown to become the premier company for sales-focused organizations looking to grow market share across European markets. The acquisition reaffirms MarketStar’s commitment to the European region and further strengthens their capabilities and delivery model built for companies that are focused on growth. Product2Market will be fully integrated with MarketStar.
“We are thrilled to become part of MarketStar,” said Anthony Byrne, Managing Director, MarketStar European Office. “MarketStar has a 30-year track record of outstanding results for their clients. They attract and work with prestigious technology clients from around the world. We really believe this acquisition will enable our strategy to build a company that will be the global leader in sales services to high growth industries.”
MarketStar, a worldwide company founded in 1988, now employs more than 1,200 employees worldwide, with its global headquarters in Ogden, Utah. The addition of a Dublin office provides a strong position in how the company will serve both European-based and international companies, allowing MarketStar to better serve existing clients and attract clients who want to scale globally.
“As we look at how to accelerate international growth for clients and employees, acquiring Product2Market provides us with an opportunity to solidify our position in the European market and increase our global sales capabilities. It also enables us greater access to the rich talent pool of Ireland,” said Keith Titus, President and CEO of MarketStar. “Combining MarketStar’s heritage of building scalable revenue acceleration programs with Product2Market’s intimate knowledge of Europe is a key accelerator to our overall growth strategy. This is a big win for our customers.”
