NEW YORK, March 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LivePerson, Inc. (Nasdaq: LPSN), a global leader in conversational solutions, has been named to Fast Company's prestigious annual list of the World's Most Innovative Companies for 2020.

The list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today's fast-changing world. LivePerson's debut on the list recognizes the company's leadership in taking the world's largest brands into the conversational space, where they engage with customers on their messaging channels of choice, on their own time, just as they do with their family and friends. As brands develop and execute their conversational strategies in a world dominated by messaging, LivePerson's expertise in conversational AI makes "going conversational" at scale possible.

"Through our industry-leading conversational platform and cutting-edge conversational AI, we've made it possible for any brand to execute a conversational strategy," said Rob LoCascio, founder and CEO of LivePerson. "I'm proud to share this incredible recognition with everyone at LivePerson and commend their hard work making AI-powered messaging the future of customer interactions."

From ordering quick-serve burritos to upgrading flights, using AI-powered messaging to do business is the next step in creating deep and enduring relationships between consumers and the brands they love. Consumers benefit from the incredible convenience, while brands benefit from developing direct relationships with their customers, which they own forever right in the same conversation thread where they first connected.

Fast Company's editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses on the planet and across myriad industries. They also judged nominations received through their application process.

The World's Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

"At a time of increasing global volatility, this year's list showcases the resilience and optimism of businesses across the world.
