San Diego, CA (November 22, 2013) – Tealium®, the leader in enterprise tag management and digital data distribution, today announced that it has been named a Red Herring Global Top 100 winner for 2013. The Red Herring editorial team selected Tealium for its innovative technology and business model from among more than 1,000 companies in 40 countries. The Red Herring Global award win follows Tealium’s recent Red Herring 2013 Top 100 Award for North America in May. The latest award was announced on Nov. 20, 2013, at a ceremony in Los Angeles.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the finalists on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. This assessment is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
“Tag management has graduated from nice-to-have to must-have technology. Digital marketers now fully appreciate tag management’s value for both streamlining digital marketing vendor deployments, and simplifying the process for collecting and enriching digital visitor data. This award validates our vision of being a neutrally-positioned resource for all customers and vendors within the digital marketing industry,” said Jeff Lunsford, CEO of Tealium. “We are honored to be chosen by Red Herring as one of the world’s top technology companies and we intend to continue in our leadership role of helping to advance the industry from inefficient and expensive batch architectures to more efficient and more effective real-time solutions.”
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Tealium embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Tealium should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
In March of 2013, Tealium received $15.6M in Series C financing from some of the most respected venture capital firms in the world, including Battery Ventures, Tenaya Capital and Presidio Ventures. The company also recently launched Tealium AudienceStream, an audience segmentation and digital data distribution platform that helps marketers improve the performance of their existing marketing programs. Tealium’s annual global user conference, Digital Velocity, is scheduled to take place on January 22 – 24, 2014 in San Diego.
