Adam Beaugh, Co-Founder and President of Zignal Labs
Adam Beaugh has been recognized as one of The Holmes Report’s Innovator 25 Americas 2019 due to his laser focus on providing today’s communications leaders with unparalleled access to modern data and media analytics. Intuitively combining the creative and the technological, Adam has led the charge in developing the Zignal Labs Media Intelligence Cloud, an innovative platform that helps communicators measure the conversations around their brands in real time, rapidly identify and mitigate reputational risks and inform strategic decision-making to achieve mission-critical business outcomes.

"Zignal Labs prides itself on disrupting the very idea of traditional media analytics by empowering communicators to demand real-time, reliable data from across the entire media spectrum,” commented Beaugh. “This award is truly the result of the many long hours the entire team has dedicated to making our vision a reality for all of the incredible brands that we serve.”

Dr. Joe Smyser, CEO of The Public Good Projects
Dr. Joe Smyser is a long-time advocate of the power of integrated, data-driven marketing in influencing public health initiatives. As part of this work, The Public Good Projects has partnered with Zignal Labs to capture, measure and analyze online conversations around major public health issues, including the opioid crisis, mental health, low birthweight, school wellness, vaccinations and influenza, among others.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by The Holmes Report Innovator 25,” said Dr. Smyser. “The analytics-driven approach we have worked with Zignal Labs to create has been critical to bridging the gap between traditionally siloed public health response strategies and the power and promise of innovative technology and marketing techniques. We look forward to continuing this important and innovative work into the future.”

Sarah Baker, Senior Director of Social Media and Distributed Digital Organizing of Everytown for Gun Safety
Leveraging Zignal Labs’ Media Intelligence Cloud in her work for Everytown for Gun Safety, Sarah Baker has championed a data-driven approach to Everytown’s communications efforts.

“I’m honored to be recognized as one of The Holmes Report’s Innovator 25 Americas 2019.
