“We believe Drawbridge’s team and technology will allow us to accelerate the capabilities of our Marketing Solutions platform,” Tomer Cohen, Vice President of Product at LinkedIn wrote in a blog post.

“As we integrate Drawbridge’s technology into LinkedIn following the closing of the transaction, we will continue to maintain the strong controls our members and customers have over the data they choose to share with us.”
