Brand Yourself Net Worth
Over 70 employees work for BrandYourself, generating an annual revenue of more than $7 million. The company is worth $21.8 million.
In 2010, three Syracuse University students founded BrandYourself. Those involved were Patrick Ambron, Pete Kistler, and Evan McGowan-Watson.
Inspiration came from Kistler’s inability to get hired as a computer programmer in the year 2008 because there was a drug dealer by his name.
The mainstream media picked up on his situation. According to NPR, the story that the computer guy Kistler was mistaken for a drug dealer gained credibility over time, although they couldn’t locate a drug dealer with the name Pete Kistler.
BrandYourself has helped a number of brands and individuals rank higher in search engine results using its services and technology. Thousands of people have improved their reputation and internet privacy with these tools.
