We are excited to announce that we have entered into agreement to be acquired by Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC). The acquisition was officially announced March 2, 2017. This huge milestone will fuel greater innovations, expansion into diverse markets and new opportunities for Headway’s clients and partners.

This is a big step forward for a bootstrapped company that was started in 2010. Founders Martin Kogan and Agustin Coll had a vision to bring together a team of driven and highly capable individuals to create something unique. In just a few short years, Kogan and Coll were able to quickly grow from 5 employees to more than 152 team members located in 18 offices across the globe.
The acquisition means even bigger and better things are on the horizon for Headway. “This is a quantum leap,” says Headway’s CEO, Martin Kogan, “by integrating into Entravision, we will become part of a larger organization that will provide additional scale, resources, support and synergies that continue to allow us to more efficiently grow our business and invest in product development, expansion of our team and securing relationships with new clients and partners.”
