Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
Equilar, the leader in executive data, has been honored with the Models of Excellence award, given jointly by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) and the InfoCommerce Group. Equilar is one of only six companies to receive the distinguished recognition this year.
Each year, InfoCommerce Group and SIIA recognize firms that have “products that are pioneering or perfecting business models, exhibit best practices or offer technological innovation. Those that are re-setting the standards for the industry are named each year as Models of Excellence, based on content, utility, functionality, revenue, viability, ambition, and market readiness.”
For more than a decade, Equilar’s extensive dataset of executive and company profiles has served the compensation benchmarking and governance needs of corporations, advisors, and investors. In recent years, Equilar has built new tools using that same dataset, allowing the company to expand its business to serve professionals in recruiting, fundraising, and business development.
“We are proud to be recognized for the quality of the data, products, and services that we deliver,” said David Chun, Founder & CEO of Equilar. “We continually strive to innovate and develop leading methods to provide clean, easy-to-access data to allow our clients to make critical business decisions.”
