Our Executive Team
DealNews started in 1997 when two friends wanted to share the amazing deals they were finding with the rest of the world. Since then, the company has grown to more than 100 employees worldwide, with an executive team that's just as enthusiastic (some might use the term "obsessed") about our mission of sharing the best deals with the world as our original founders were.
