We're Cheetah Digital

Proven enterprise marketing expertise
Our story begins in 1998 with the founding of CheetahMail, an email service provider who redefined what service means to marketers. Six years later, the company was acquired by Experian and became a key component of its Experian Marketing Services business. In 2013, Experian Marketing Services acquired Conversen, a cross-channel marketing platform that now serves as the foundation of our Marketing Suite. In June 2017, Vector Capitol acquired the business and launched Cheetah Digital as the largest independent enterprise marketing company. Today, Cheetah Digital works with some of the world’s largest consumer brands, helping build customer trust and drive revenue.
