“John is a strong entrepreneur with a wealth of relevant knowledge and connections, and the MatchMate transaction is consistent with our strategy to continue to build scale in our business.”
MatchMate was founded in Utah in 2012, and Soman hopes the acquisition will help with their plans to launch a mobile app this year.
