CHICAGO – May 21, 2014 – BrightTag, the global leader in real-time cloud-based marketing technologies, today announced it has been selected as a winner of the 2014 Red Herring Top 100 North America awards, which honor the innovations and technologies of the leading private companies.
“BrightTag is proud to be recognized by Red Herring,” said Mike Sands, President and CEO, BrightTag. “This recognition underscores the strength of our vision to build a new infrastructure for the future of marketing technology, and the significant business momentum we’re experiencing in the marketplace. Today, 8,000 clients and thousands more websites around the globe use BrightTag’s technology to collect, integrate and take action on their cross-channel customer data in real time, from websites, mobile devices and beyond.”
The Red Herring Top 100 North America awards honor outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. The publication selects 100 winners from among the approximately 3,000 tech companies financed each year in the U.S. and Canada. Since 1996, it has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as eBay, Facebook, Google, Salesforce.com, Skype, Twitter, Yahoo and YouTube would change the way we live and work.
“In 2014, selecting the top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO, Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the top 100 winners. We believe BrightTag embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. BrightTag should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
