Sorenson Media announced it ranked number 229 on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. Sorenson Media grew 426 percent during this period.
Sorenson Media created the Spark platform, a next generation television advertising and analytics software suite that harnesses the potential of addressable content. The Spark platform allows personalization on the vast scope of global broadcast television, giving advertisers interactive, addressable options with second-by-second measurement; features previously only found in digital.
"We're thrilled to be recognized as part of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500," said Marcus Liassides, CEO at Sorenson Media. "Our technology, partnerships, scale and team position us well for widespread adoption of our Spark platform as a key for success in television advertising."
Deloitte Technology Fast 500 selects companies based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth over a three year period. Deloitte LLP compiles the ranking from public record research and information submitted by applicants.

"These companies are on the cutting edge and are transforming the way we do business.
