PHOENIX, Nov. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Freestar, the leading monetization partner for content publishers, e-commerce sites, and app developers, today announced it ranked No. 31 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 now in its 26th year.

In addition to placing in the top 40, Freestar landed the No. 1 spot in the digital content/media sector. This award comes on the heels of the company’s recent acknowledgement as one of the fastest growing companies in the Arizona Corporate Excellence awards earlier in the month. The company has no plans of slowing down having hired 28 new employees in 2020 and posting its best quarter in company history in Q3.

“We are thrilled to be in such incredible company near the top of the list and especially proud to have achieved such growth as one of the few boot-strapped companies in the Fast 500. We attribute our continued success to our passionate team of industry experts, our cutting-edge technology and our ‘Publisher First’ mentality to ensure the success of our clients above all else”, said Kurt Donnell, President and CEO of Freestar. ”We are fortunate to head into 2021 with a great deal of momentum and look forward to launching a wide-range of new products and analytics tools in the coming months to further optimize our partners’ revenue and simplify their lives.”

“For more than 25 years, we’ve been honoring companies that define the cutting edge and this year’s Technology Fast 500 list is proof positive that technology — from software and digital media platforms, to biotech — truly does permeate so many facets of our lives,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “We congratulate this year’s winners, especially during a time when innovation is needed more than ever to address the monumental challenges posed by the pandemic.”
