MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At an awards ceremony in Southern California, Red Herring magazine announced that CrisisResponsePro, a secure SAAS for crisis and litigation communications, was named to its Top 100 Global list of the leading private companies from North America, Europe and Asia. The prestigious award celebrates innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring's Top 100 Global has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. 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 the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe CrisisResponsePro embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture."
"We are honored to be named to this prestigious list, and feel it's a testament to the success of our young start-up," said Jim Haggerty, Founder & CEO of CrisisResponsePro. "The level of talent represented on this list is extraordinary. We're humbled by our inclusion."
CrisisResponsePro was developed by PRCG | Haggerty LLC, a leading communications firm specializing in crisis communications, litigation communications and other sensitive areas of public relations and reputation management. Jim Haggerty's new book, Chief Crisis Officer, will be published in 2017 by Ankerwycke Books, an imprint of the American Bar Association.
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 records and standing of startups relative to their 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 from around the world.
Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising start-ups since 1995.
