San Diego, CA (January 23, 2014) – Tealium®, the leader in enterprise tag management and digital data distribution, today announced that it has been named to Forbes Magazine’s list of America’s Most Promising Companies for 2014. The annual list recognizes the top 100 companies that possess high growth, a strong management team and investors, large potential market opportunity and notable customers and partners.
Tealium, which was also identified by Forbes as one of “20 Amazing Companies Founded During the Financial Crisis” of the late 2000s, made the announcement at the start of its second annual Digital Velocity user conference. Tealium is expecting more than 300 customers, partners and special guests to attend the event at the Omni San Diego Hotel on Jan. 23-24, 2014.
“To be recognized by Forbes is a great honor and a testament to the hard work of our employees and the ongoing success of our many customers. Tag management is widely recognized as foundational to best practices in digital marketing, enabling marketers to be more efficient and increase ROI,” said Jeff Lunsford, CEO at Tealium. “In 2014, we look forward to delivering further innovation to help clients provide unified marketing experiences across channels and devices.”
Tealium’s solutions help marketers seamlessly manage their digital marketing deployments and solve their customer data integration challenges. Tealium AudienceStream, a new audience segmentation and digital data distribution platform, and Tealium iQ, the company’s enterprise tag management solution, enable organizations to streamline digital operations and maximize the performance of their marketing initiatives via their existing solutions.
Over the past 12 months, strong demand for Tealium’s solutions have helped the company achieve a record-setting year, including a 140 percent increase in revenue growth, and more than doubling the company’s enterprise customer base worldwide. Tealium now has hundreds of enterprise customers around the world, representing thousands of top brands. In November, Tealium was honored with a Red Herring Global Top 100 Award as one of the leading private technology companies in the world.
Forbes’ third annual list of America’s Most Promising Companies recognizes 100 privately-held, high-growth companies. Companies that made the cut boast compelling business models, strong management teams, as well as notable customers and investors. Forbes strove for a holistic gauge of young, privately-held businesses, attempting to pin down their trajectories by taking a range of variables into account. Over the course of four months Forbes reviewed hundreds of applications. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management teams and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships. After verifying sales numbers, speaking with each company and debating their merits and blemishes, Forbes produces a final ranking.
