My guest on the show today is Brian Balbirnie, CEO of Issuer Direct Corporation (NYSE American: ISDR). Issuer Direct® is a leading communications and compliance company, providing solutions for both Public Relations and Investor Relations Professionals. Our comprehensive solutions are used by thousands of customers from emerging startups to multi-billion dollar global brands, ensuring their most important moments are reaching the right audiences, via our industry leading newswire, IR website solutions, events technology, and compliance solutions.
For full disclosure, we're a customer of Issuer Direct's, using their events software and webcast solutions for our investor conferences, as well as publishing press releases through the Accesswire platform. I've also known Brian for pretty much my entire career working in MicroCaps and would consider him both a friend and colleague, and have always admired how he's gone about building and running Issuer Direct over the years. We've done a couple interviews over the years, but thought it was time for us to geek out on the media and news business, as well as discuss:
- Issuer Direct's just announced acquisition of Newswire and what the biggest acquisition in the company's history means for them moving forward
- the in and outs of the Press Release and News Distribution business and industry
- Lessons learned from mistakes made and what inspired the founding of Issuer Direct, and;
- Brian's vision for the company in 3-5 years
With that, please enjoy my conversation with Brian Balbirnie, CEO of Issuer Direct Corporation.For more information about Issuer Direct Corporation, please visit: https://www.issuerdirect.com/
