Recognition in North America comes on heels of strong EMEA growth
SAN JOSE, Calif. – May 28, 2015 – Ensighten, the leading global omni-channel data and tag management provider and company behind the Open Marketing Platform, today announced it has been short-listed for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America Award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology companies from the North American business region.
Since 1995, Red Herring has showcased the most promising start-ups and fast-growing companies, based on 20 major criteria marking the scoring process. Ensighten made the 2015 Red Herring Top 100 North America finalist list based on its addressable market size, revenue growth numbers, financing, leadership expertise and wide-scale adoption of its Open Marketing Platform. News of Ensighten’s recognition on Red Herring’s Top 100 list and momentum in North America comes on the heels of the company’s announcement of strong growth in Europe and the appointment of industry veteran Ian Woolley as Ensighten’s General Manager of EMEA.
“We’re honored to be named a finalist in Red Herring’s Top 100 North America Award,” said Josh Manion, founder and CEO of Ensighten. “This acknowledgement is a testament to our rapid growth, not only in North America, but across the globe, and demonstrates our team’s commitment to helping change the face of digital marketing and deliver a more personalized experience to consumers.”
During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies across the continent completed their submissions to qualify for the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award. The recognition from Red Herring acknowledges Ensighten’s momentum in the marketplace, including the 2014 closing of a $40 million Series B investment, acquisitions of TagMan and 2014 Red Herring Top 100 winnerAnametrix, and a growing and notable list of Fortune 500 customers.
“The short-list confirms the excellent foresight and strong innovations created by entrepreneurs in North America. By all measures, the remarkable group of companies comprising the Top 100 Short-list underlines the region’s constant drive to innovate,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.
In addition to being recognized as a finalist in the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award, Ensighten recently ranked on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies in the U.S. and was named an AlwaysOn Top 100 winner for its market-disrupting technology.
