Leads.io (formerly known as Social Blue) is a technology-driven group of lead generation specialists that provides a scalable source of leads for clients in various markets and verticals using in-house technology and creative teams. They specialize in generating performance-based, high-quality leads through a variety of online marketing channels such as Google, Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, native, and display. Leads.io was born and raised in The Netherlands, but grew rapidly all over the world. Currently, the company employs ca. 200 FTE and serves over 1000 clients with 11 offices (and counting!) in the Netherlands, Canada, Australia, Singapore, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, and the United Kingdom. The head office is located in Hoorn.
In 2021, Leads.io attracted Egeria as an investor to provide the company with the financial backing and operational support needed for further international expansion and acquisitions. The company’s goal is to become the global leader in lead generation by building a group of lead generation specialists in multiple verticals and marketing channels. The company started with their buy & build strategy and the first successful acquisitions and integrations were made. In order to strengthen the backbone behind the buy & build strategy, the company wants to bring the finance department to a next level and that is why we are looking for a ambitious Finance Director, with a clear vision on finance, IT and people.
“We’re impressed by Leads.io’s strong growth and its strong company culture. Through its leading market position in a fast-growing market and scalable business model, we believe it is a platform to further build upon. We look forward to partnering with management to support its strategic ambitions including further organic and acquisitive growth.”
