FE International, Inc., the global market leader in mid-market technology mergers and acquisitions (M&A), announces the acquisition of membership platform PodcastGuests.com by serial entrepreneur Brian Scully.
(PRUnderground) January 30th, 2023
PodcastGuests.com was launched in 2016 with one goal in mind – effortlessly connect podcasters with experts, authors, and other guests to be featured on their shows. Through its streamlined email and directory membership business model, the business has been able to connect over 40,000 users.
Founder Andrew Allemann, said, “I created PodcastGuests.com to solve a problem I had, finding new and exciting guests to feature on my own podcast. I knew the time was right to find someone to take the platform to the next level. FE International found a buyer it had previously worked with, making the process super simple.”
Upon completing the deal, new owner Brian Scully, said “PodcastGuests.com is a thriving marketplace connecting podcasts and guest experts. I am excited to expand and innovate on the great platform and community that Andrew founded. The power of podcasts to bring people and conversations together in long-form media accessible to anyone has become one of the best use cases of the internet. I am looking forward to continuing to make it easy for podcasts and great guests to connect. Andrew was the first to create a podcast-guest matching service and I intend to preserve the spirit of the platform while finding ways to take it to the next level.”
FE International served as the sole sell-side M&A advisor on the acquisition. “PodcastGuests.com was an incredibly compelling opportunity for Brian to take over a thriving business that is well positioned to scale. We are proud to have worked with both parties to get the deal closed and can’t wait to see how the brand grows from here,” said Thomas Smale, CEO of FE International.
