Award-winning performance media platform, Acquisio, has been ranked number 7 in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ and 110 in the Deloitte Fast 500™.
Montreal, November 21, 2013 — Acquisio, the award-winning performance media platform for agencies and marketers, has been named one of Canada’s fastest growing technology companies in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ awards. The award celebrates technological innovation, entrepreneurship, rapid growth and leadership, based on the percentage of revenue growth over five years. Acquisio’s increase in revenues of 1,445% percent from 2008 to 2012 resulted in a ranking of seventh.
In addition, Acquisio was ranked 110 in the Deloitte Fast 500. The Fast 500 ranks the 500 fastest-growing companies throughout North America in the technology, telecommunications, life sciences, and clean technology sectors.
Acquisio’s CEO, Martin Le Sauteur, credits Acquisio’s growth to continued innovation and strategic acquisition of advanced technology designed to provide marketers with an integrated digital marketing platform that enables unparalleled campaign optimization over multiple channels.
Said Le Sauteur, “Our rise to number seven this year clearly demonstrates the industry’s need for advanced technology in the digital marketing space, as well as the significant achievements made by our science and technology development teams. With the acquisition of ScienceOps, we have been able to integrate the industry’s highest performing PPC campaign optimization system into our platform. In addition, the development of the next generation of the Acquisio platform has generated interest around the world, allowing us to enable digital marketers at higher levels of efficiency and performance than ever before.”
“Canadian Fast 50 companies innovate, demonstrate leadership, create jobs, and invest in R&D,” said Richard Lee, Deloitte’s National Managing Partner, Technology, Media & Telecommunications. “They are remarkable companies that show dedication, drive and commitment that are key to growth in the Canadian technology sector.”
