NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — At the annual Red Herring award ceremony – this year in Newport Beach – LiveAuctioneers.com was named a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America award winner. Red Herring is a respected digital-media company focused on innovation and cutting-edge technology. The annual awards event honors private companies that excel within their sectors of the economy.
As a Top 100 winner, LiveAuctioneers.com is recognized as being among the very best of 25 million small businesses in the US and Canada that would be eligible to compete for the award. Since 1996, Red Herring has identified many up-and-coming superstars. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies like Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.
LiveAuctioneers.com is a leading marketplace for curated merchandise. Accepting the 2016 award on behalf of LiveAuctioneers.com, VP Product and Marketing Phil Michaelson related the Manhattan-based company’s 14-year history and shared details of the company’s rapid growth. “In an industry crowded by household brands like eBay, Etsy and Alibaba, our competitive advantage has been building unique levels of trust amongst collectors, dealers and auction houses, often at the expense of our own short-term economic interests,” Michaelson said.
As an example of the company’s corporate integrity, LiveAuctioneers.com recently partnered with the U.S. Wildlife Trafficking Alliance to build standards surrounding the sale of ivory and is in the process of banning ivory from its own platform.
