About 614 group

STORY

Our company was born in the heart of New York City. In 2012, our founder Rob Rasko sat in the opulent Reading Room at the New York Public Library in Bryant Park. He was finishing a business plan for what he saw was a true need in the advertising technology industry: an independent voice in digital advertising infrastructure. In front of him was a small seat label that read “614,” and the rest is history.
