Scottsdale, Ariz., – (December 8, 2016) Digital Air Strike, the leading social media and digital engagement company, won its second Red Herring Top 100 Global Award, presented recently at an awards ceremony in Marina del Rey, California. The company joins an elite group to have won the Global Award two years in a row. Digital Air Strike is also a two-time winner of the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award, having received the honor in 2015 and 2016. Only two percent of winning companies have ever won both the Red Herring North America and Red Herring Global awards two years in a row.
Having won previously for its expertise in serving the automotive industry, this year Digital Air Strike was recognized for its continued growth and innovation in the automotive vertical and the extensive demand from many emerging markets in 2016 including those overseas.
“This award is truly a testament to Digital Air Strike’s spirit of innovation and the results we deliver for business owners,” said Alexi Venneri, Co-founder and CEO of Digital Air Strike. “To have won the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award for two years in a row was truly exciting. Now to win the Top 100 Global Award two years in a row, against the toughest competition on an international scale, is an incredible honor.”
The Red Herring editorial team selected the finalist companies from thousands of entries and 40 countries that demonstrate the most innovative technologies and business models. The winners are chosen based on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to, technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management’s execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy, and market share improvement.
“The 2016 Red Herring nominees have proven that while some will worry about a bubble, there is no pause in innovation any time soon. And nothing must be taken for granted in this electoral year,” said Red Herring CEO, Alex Vieux. “An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are jumping ahead of the competition and making a difference. Constant breakthroughs make recent developments obsolete faster than ever before.”
