Atmsphere is now valued at over $1 billion after this later evaluation.

“The way customers consume TV in businesses has always been broken. The paradigms of television have been in flux for years and we saw the opportunity to create TV content and advertising specifically for businesses,” said John Resig, Co-Founder and President of Atmosphere. “Atmosphere is the perfect solution for advertisers who are looking to get in front of an increasingly unreachable TV audience.”

Atmosphere also announced a new CEO Resig also announced that he will be taking on a new role as Chief Innovation Officer and Co-Executive Chairman alongside his brother and fellow Co-Founder, John Resig.

“After a year where we doubled our customer count, continued to expand internationally, and realized a $1B valuation, I am looking forward to concentrating full time on the product and platform innovations that will continue to keep Atmosphere on this incredible trajectory,” said Resig. “Blake’s operational expertise and proven leadership capabilities will continue to keep us on course and poised for our next phase of growth.”
