Domain Holdings is pleased to announce that one of its board members earned a top honor this week. Matias de Tezanos’ company BrokersWeb, a leading performance marketing platform for insurance products, was named the fastest growing company in South Florida by the South Florida Business Journal. Of the 50 finalists, BrokersWeb saw over a 300 percent growth in revenue in one year, nearly twice as much as No. 2 on the list.
The list topped out at 50, and all of the companies showed a few common characteristics. All of the companies had to be based in South Florida. They all also generated at least $1 million in revenue during 2010. Finally, all showed at least a 25 percent jump in revenue over a one-year period.
Matias has had previous success in building niche brands in the digital space with Hoteles.com and ClickDiario.com. The former was a hotel reservation directory for Spanish speakers and was acquired by Expedia in 2002. His next venture, ClickDiario.com, targeted an online network of advertisers for the Spanish-speaking web population and sold to Newscorp four years later.
Needless to say, we aren’t surprised that BrokersWeb is No. 1 based on his track record. We look forward to bigger and brighter things ahead for Matias, and are happy he is on board to help steer the ship here at Domain Holdings.
