Independent Video SSP Recognized for Excellence in Innovation, Financial Performance, and Commitment to Community
DENVER, CO–(Marketwired – Jun 26, 2015) – EY today announced that Jeremy Ostermiller of Altitude Digital is the winner of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2015 Award for Ad Technology in the Mountain Desert region.
Denver-based Altitude Digital is the largest independent online video supply-side platform (SSP), a technology that online publishers use to help monetize their video streams through advertising. Its flagship ARENA technology provides premium online publishers with data, measurement, transparency and fraud protection, and is the fastest publisher platform in the market.
In May, Altitude launched first-of-its-kind fraud detection and reporting solution that helps publishers identify non-human “bot” traffic on their websites, demonstrating a commitment to solving difficult online advertising issues.
“It’s an honor to be named the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year for Ad Technology,” said Ostermiller. “Altitude Digital has grown along with the rapidly expanding online advertising industry. Online video has quickly become a focal point of digital advertising, and we’ve assembled a business and a team that is 100-percent publisher focused, helping them solve complex issues and get the most out of online video advertising. This recognition validates all the hard work our team has contributed, to both the business and the Denver community. We’ll look to continue that success throughout the year.”
Throughout the past year, Altitude Digital has been active in several philanthropic activities in the Denver area, including supporting Youth on Record, Concerts for Kids series, and donating to the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver.
The EY awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. These leading entrepreneurs were selected by an independent judging panel made up of previous winners of the award as well as other regional business leaders. The winners were revealed at a special gala event on June 25, 2015 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
Now in its 29th year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 14, 2015. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
Founded and produced by EY, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are nationally sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and SAP America.
In The Mountain Desert region sponsors also include Faegre Baker Daniels, Colliers International, Scherzer International and the Denver Business Journal.
