Yashi is excited to officially announce that we’ve been ranked #44 on the 2012 NJBIZ 50 fastest-growing private companies in the New Jersey. NJBIZ and the program sponsors honored Yashi and this year’s 50 fastest growing companies in New Jersey during an awards dinner and ceremony on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at the Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, New Jersey, where co-founders, Jay Gould and Caitlin Gould, accepted the award on behalf of Yashi.
“We are very honored to be named among the top 50 fastest growing companies in New Jersey. We’re particularly thrilled since unlike other awards where popularity may play a role, this award is based purely on revenue growth, which is the direct result of our team’s effort over the last four years. Over the past five years we have experienced exponential growth and we anticipate that, with the help of our experienced staff and management, we will continue our growth in the future,” said Jay Gould, CEO & co-founder of Yashi.
Several team members at Yashi attended the award ceremony and had a great partying and traveling in style with champagne and drinks!
The NJBIZ 50 Fastest Growing Companies awards program celebrates New Jersey’s most dynamic companies who progressively contribute to the success of the state’s economic growth and stability. To qualify, companies had to meet selection criteria that included a revenue size of at least $500,000 within the past three out of four years and growth in revenue over a four-year period, dating from fiscal year 2008 to 2011.
Presenting sponsor ParenteBeard calculated the nominations and then ranked the companies according to revenue growth over the four-year period. Both dollar and percentage increases were taken into consideration.
“We are very proud that during the worst economic downturn since the great depression, Yashi has continued its growth and added new jobs in the Toms River, New Jersey area, within the fastest growing industry, Online Advertising,” said Jay Gould, CEO of Yashi.
Yashi manages a global online advertising network of thousands of websites. Advertisers work with Yashi to reach targeted audiences across the long-tail of the Internet through the use of standard and non-IAB display and pre-roll advertisements.
Yashi is excited to announce that we’ve been ranked #903 on the 2012 Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States. Past Inc 5000 honoree’s include Zappos, Pandora, Microsoft, Intuit, Facebook and more!
Among the top 5,000 fastest-growing companies in America, 157 were based in New Jersey, employing 45,590 people, of which Yashi ranked #38 among all New Jersey based companies, and ranked #5 within its industry of Advertising & Marketing!
In 2011 we grew Yashi to the 7th largest video ad network on comScore, delivering over 100 million monthly video ads, and we have continued to add new ad formats and products for our publishers.
We are honored to be given such a high recognition, having already surpassed our 2011 revenue this year, we look forward to continued growth and success in 2012 and beyond!
