WideOrbit Named Red Herring Top 100 Global Winner

WideOrbit Inc., the leading provider of advertising management software for media companies is pleased to announce that it has received the Red Herring Top 100 Global award as one of the leading private companies from North America, Europe and Asia.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay would change the way we live and work. Top 100 Global winners are selected based on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration, in addition to their track record and standing relative to their peers.

“We’re tremendously honored to be recognized by Red Herring as an innovative, global technology leader,” said Eric R. Mathewson, Founder and CEO of WideOrbit. “I’m incredibly proud of our team and their unrelenting focus on customer satisfaction and building the best media solutions in the industry.”

WideOrbit was invited to participate in the Red Herring Top 100 Global award after receiving the Top 100 Americas award in May, honoring the year’s most promising private technology companies in North America. This award follows on the heels of WideOrbit receiving Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 award for the third time and being named one of the Bay Area’s Top 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the fourth consecutive year by the San Francisco Business Times.
