Message Systems Named Winner in the Red Herring Top 100 North American Awards
June 05, 2015
Message Systems, the global leader in email infrastructure – including its renowned SparkPost service – today announced it has won the coveted Red Herring Top 100 North America award. The company was selected from among hundreds of candidates for the industry-wide recognition.
"In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North Americato the North America winners. We believe Message Systems embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Message Systems should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."
Red Herring annually honors the most promising private technology companies that are positioned to become market leaders within their respective sectors. As part of the final vetting process, the Red Herring editorial team analyzes approximately 1,200 cutting edge companies, only awarding those organizations that not just meet – but surpass – their criteria for success.
Message Systems was selected as an award recipient due, in large part, to the successful launch of its SparkPost cloud-based email delivery service. Collectively, Message Systems' customers, including Pinterest, Zillow, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Groupon, Salesforce, Marketo, Oracle, Time Warner, Comcast, AT&T and American Express, move over 3 trillion messages a year – more than 25 percent of the world's legitimate email – which further solidifies its position as the leader in email technology.
"2015 is becoming our most remarkable year to date, highlighted by the launch of our SparkPost service, a substantial funding round and the acquisition of email technology company Port25," said Phillip Merrick, CEO of Message Systems. "It's an honor to be recognized for these accomplishments by both Red Herring and the industry in general. With a continued focus on meeting the email delivery needs of our customers, we look forward to even greater success in the future."
