ST. LOUIS (April 8, 2016) – Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it has entered into a multi-year partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals.
Under terms of the agreement, Perficient will receive a variety of marketing and corporate engagement benefits.
“We’re thrilled to enter into this relationship with the most storied franchise in St. Louis sports and with an organization that truly shares our appreciation of, affinity for, and commitment to the St. Louis region,” said Bill Davis, Perficient’s managing director of marketing and communications. “We expect this partnership to be mutually beneficial as two true St. Louis success stories team to support one another.”
Central to the agreement is the buildout of the “Perficient Perch,” an area above the third base line of Busch Stadium that provides impressive views of the St. Louis skyline, playing field, and the Cardinals’ new multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art, high definition LED video boards, all of which have been upgraded in advance of the 2016 season.
“It’s exciting to add a fast-growing, successful and dynamic St. Louis corporation like Perficient to our partner family,” said Dan Farrell, Cardinals senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Each year, the Cardinals organization invests significant time, energy and financial resources to continue to improve our in-stadium customer experience. The Perficient Perch will grow to represent a new, exciting area of our stadium, and we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with a firm like Perficient to make that a reality.”
In addition to the signage associated with the themed Perch area, Perficient will receive radio exposure on the Cardinals’ flagship radio station, KMOX, as well as across the entire Cardinals Radio Network, which constitutes more than 140 stations across nine states. Corporate hospitality and in-game exposure are included.
In recent years, both organizations have been among the most successful in their respective industries. Since 2000, the Cardinals have reached the postseason in 12 of 15 seasons and appeared in the World Series four times, winning twice. Perficient has scaled from a startup to a global consulting leader with more than 2,800 employees and projecting more than $500 million in revenue in 2016.
