Catalina's vision is to revolutionize marketing performance by pioneering breakthroughs in media and insights that engage every consumer everywhere.


WHAT WE DO

Only Catalina knows the evolving purchase history and individual needs of more than three-quarters of American shoppers. We use that insight to create personalized, measurable promtional and advertising solutions that motivate high-value consumers to try new products, increase consumption, and stay loyal to CPG brands and retailers.

CPG BRANDS

Catalina helps CPG brands build consumer loyalty, drive efficient volume and increase market share. Our personalized promotion and advertising solutions engage customers via mobile, online and in-store with the largest addressable media network for CPG.

RETAILERS

Catalina is a trusted partner for the world’s leading food, drug and mass retailers. Together, we drive repeat store trips and increased baskets during each trip. The net result is stronger shopper loyalty and increased sales, driving topline lift of 1% or more.

AGENCIES

Catalina helps agencies maximize their clients’ advertising and promotional campaigns, leveraging personalization and closed-loop reporting based on actual purchases. We enable them to reach and influence consumers at each stage of the awareness and buying cycle. 




ANNUAL LETTER TO OUR CUSTOMERS

When asked during my first few months on the job why I decided to join Catalina, I consistently replied that it was the easiest decision I ever made. We have an enormous opportunity to help our customers efficiently drive revenue growth in a very difficult environment. Collaboration, transparency, objectivity and innovation are required, and our company is up to the challenge.

I want to begin the year, our 35th in business, by thanking our customers, on behalf of the entire Catalina team, for your commitment to our partnership. There’s $750 billion running through our network annually, generating 8 billion messages - 2 billion digitally - to 300 million shoppers. We treat this responsibility with the utmost care.

Every one of our 1,300 team members gets stoked when we talk about evolving our culture to become more innovative and customer-centric. We are approaching 2017 with a renewed focus and commitment – at every level of our organization - to being an indispensable business partner. Nothing is more important to us than driving results for your business.

Catalina’s mission is to power results that matter most to our CPG brand and retail partners by delivering meaningful value to the world’s consumers. We take this aspiration seriously and have invested significantly to bring new capabilities to life. While we continue to optimize our business, our team has achieved significant milestones over the last year. I say that with no pride given my limited time on the job.

The competitive landscape is fierce for both of us. Catalina’s differentiation comes in the form of omni - a term we do not take lightly despite its over-use. The programs that have captured our most significant investment are ready for primetime.

Our new marketing services platform enables our customers to execute omni campaigns to more seamlessly connect with consumers anytime, anywhere. By the end of 2017, every message in our system will have omni capability and every consumer insight will be captured in real time. Our team converted the data capture system in 2016, significantly improving quality and security without the fanfare often associated with major system conversions. You will see the difference.

I am committed to building this business into one of our industry’s most admired workplaces with a raving fan base of employees and customers. Catalina has built a wonderful foundation that is powering us toward a new horizon: world-class consumer insights that are objective and focused solely on giving you the information you need to profitably grow your business. Our work approach will be exceptionally collaborative. Our commitments to customers will be the lifeblood of our company. Our culture will set us apart, and I hope you treat this letter as an invitation to expect nothing less.

Together, we can deliver unparalleled value to consumers, efficiently leverage marketing dollars, and achieve unparalleled results measured by one version of the truth. I greatly look forward to connecting with you to strengthen our partnership and ensure your satisfaction with Catalina is both exceptional and enduring.

My best,

Andy Heyman, Catalina CEO

CATALINA INTRODUCES FLEXIBLE TIME OFF POLICY

(Oct. 2016) - Catalina, the personalized digital media company, today announced a new Flexible Time-Off policy giving employees more freedom and encouraging a strong work-life balance. Instead of balancing a predetermined set of vacation days each year, employees will now have the opportunity to manage their personal time off in partnership with their manager.

This progressive new policy was introduced as a way to enhance the benefits for current U.S. employees and to attract new talent. Catalina recognizes that work styles and personal lives differ, and our Flexible Time-Off program gives employees the freedom to adapt their time-off to their unique circumstances. As a high-performance culture, Catalina’s employees are focused on delivering the results our customer needs, while having the flexibility to regulate their personal lives without worrying about losing vacation time under a one-size-fits-all policy. On top of the new program, Catalina will continue to offer sick days, a community service day, and nine paid holidays.

“Catalina believes in a culture of mutual trust, which is why we are adopting a flexible approach to vacation time for our employees,” said Ray Lewis, Catalina’s interim CHRO. “This approach reflects our commitment to providing employees with opportunities for rest, rejuvenation and personal pursuits, and is in line with our focus to attract the best and brightest talent.”

The new Flexible Time-Off program promotes open communication between employees and their managers around expectations for work performance and time away from the office. In return for flexibility, Catalina believes that employees will continue to invest in the company’s mission, ensuring their work is done well, so customers are supported. With this new approach, Catalina believes the organization can thrive as employees are able to better balance their work and personal lives.

    I have been working at Catalina full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great NEW management and resources being brought in to turn things around. Dedicated to expanding into newer technologies and products. Good work-life balance, and level of respect between employees and management. Management is hiring good talent and genuinely wants their input.

    Cons

    For too long, the company operated without processes or controls. Starting to turn around, but there's a long way to go.

    Advice to Management

    Work together (across Product, Sales, Tech...) to figure out where the issues are and be accountable for fixing them.
