CHICAGO , April 19 /Businesswire/ - 1440, the media brand helping more than 3.5 million Americans stay informed, today announced that AdExchanger and AdMonsters have honored two of its marketing leaders in the annual Top Women in Media & Ad Tech Awards. 1440 Head of Growth Erika Burghardt has been recognized as an honoree in the Change-Makers category, which honors women who have successfully altered the course of their brands or the industry for the better, and 1440 Head of Social Lauren Mendoza-Routt has been recognized as an honoree in the Up-And-Comers category, which celebrates women in ad tech who are on the rise and making their mark within their first 10 years in the industry.

As the head of growth, Burghardt has acquired 2.3 million new newsletter subscribers in just 10 months and increased user engagement through paid media. Mendoza-Routt has significantly expanded 1440’s reach and revolutionized news consumption as the head of social.
