Los Angeles – June 30, 2010 – Leads360, the industry leader in sales lead management software, today announced that it has been selected as a 2010 Red Herring Top 100 North America company. Red Herring grants the award to the industry’s top 100 private companies in North America. This honor recognizes successful entrepreneurial companies with promising technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of successful companies relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
“When we founded Leads360, our goal was to provide companies with the industry’s best online tool for lead management to help them improve their sales processes and make the overall customer experience more positive,” said Jeff Solomon, one of the founders of Leads360 and senior vice president of product and marketing. “Amidst one of the most challenging economic environments in the past 25 years, we are pleased to say that today we manage more than 25 million leads for over 5,000 clients in a variety of vertical markets. Our success is due not only to great technology but also to our tremendous team of people. We’re very honored to be recognized by Red Herring.”
Red Herring’s Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying winning companies. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Leads360 embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful organization. Leads360 should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
