Deloitte Fast 50 – Rising Star Award

Sydney – 11 November 2014

Benchmarketing announced today that it has been nominated for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Rising Star Award 2014. The program is now in its 14th year, and recognizes and profiles Australian technology companies that have experienced the fastest rates of annual revenue growth based on percentage revenue growth over the last three years.

The Rising Star Award acknowledges young companies that haven’t been in business for the five-year minimum to qualify for the Top 50. These ‘Rising Stars’ have the potential to become market leaders and Deloitte chooses to also reward these early achievers for their outstanding growth.

“We’re very excited to be nominated for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Rising Star Award,” said Gil Snir, Chief Marketing Officer at Benchmarketing. “We’ve had a major focus on growth over the past 12 months, and to facilitate this we’ve focused on hiring talent across all areas of the business. At Bench, we’re poised to launch a new technology product that will change the programmatic media buying landscape, and are currently operating under a rather unique business model. Our holistic approach to digital media buying is what lets us consistently outperform our competitors, and it’s our excellent team and leading in-house buying technology that enables this.”
