Kitchener, November 15, 2018 — Sortable is presented the Deloitte Technology Fast 50TM program award for its rapid revenue growth, entrepreneurial spirit and bold innovation. The program and annual award distinguishes 50 Canadian technology companies with the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years. Sortable ranks 45 with a 483 percent in revenue growth from 2014 to 2017.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector, which have transformed the industry. Now in its 21st year, the program runs alongside the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500 TM, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
Sortable's CEO Chris Reid credits the trend towards increased transparency within the digital advertising space and Sortable's ability to deliver efficient access for advertisers and generate deep insights through its industry-leading technology platform and big data as key contributors to the company's fast growth. Reid said "Our continuing goal is to shape our industry through technology, transparency, and partnerships to help web publishers do what they do best — create great content."
“Business is changing rapidly, and what used to work a few years ago isn’t a recipe for what will work in the future,” said Erica Pretorius, Partner and National Leader for the Technology Fast 50 TM program at Deloitte Canada. “Fast 50 winners are a beacon of innovation and I’m looking forward to how they will change the business and technology landscape in the future.”
