"We are excited to be recognized by Red Herring on a global scale for our continued innovation and success in online video advertising," said Matt Sanchez, CEO of VideoEgg. "This honor validates the hard work our team has done to help brands engage the right people in the right environments by delivering a compelling rich media experience."
