TORONTO (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Chango, the only programmatic advertising company powered by live-profile technology, has been named as Canada’s fastest growing technology company in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards for technological innovation, entrepreneurship, rapid growth and leadership, based on the percentage of revenue growth over five years.
Now in its 17th year, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program celebrates leaders in the Canadian technology industry and tracks the successful growth of Canadian-grown leaders. The program augments the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500 initiative with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
Chango's CEO Chris Sukornyk attributes the company’s growth to the rapid adoption of programmatic advertising by marketers and Chango’s combination of integrated technology and massive data resources. "The advertising industry is undergoing a great shift right now in how they connect with their audiences,” said Sukornyk. “Chango was one of the first companies to understand the potential of programmatic advertising to help marketers reach their customers in real-time with the right message.”
“Fast 50 companies are entrepreneurial, innovate and demonstrate leadership,” said Pascal Lamoureux, Partner and Leader for Deloitte’s Fast 50 program. “Their commitment and achievements are critical to the growth of the Canadian technology sector.”
To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must have been in business for at least five years, have revenues of at least $5 million, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, and conduct research and development activities in Canada. A panel of industry experts evaluate and judge companies based on four key criteria: competitive advantage; size, growth, and market attractiveness; management effectiveness and organization; and financial performance.
