CHARLOTTE, N.C.– Mark Brodsky of Red Ventures, a high-growth online marketing company, has been named a finalist in the Charlotte Business Journal’s first annual CFO of the Year Awards.
Since Brodsky joined Red Ventures in 2003, the private company has grown from 22 to 500 employees and is a leading provider of customers to DIRECTV, ADT Security Services, and other major brands. 2009 revenue is projected to grow 33% over 2008 despite the recession, and the company continues to seek top talent to fill new positions in online marketing, technology and business management at its Charlotte headquarters.
Red Ventures applies its expertise in online marketing and sales to generate new customers for leading home and business services companies. Every relationship is performance-based; the company is only paid when it delivers new customers.

Red Ventures was recently ranked 17th on the Inc. 500 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. It was second among marketing companies on the list. It was also named Growth Company of the Year in 2008 by the North Carolina Technology Association.
“The fact that our company has remained on a solid growth trajectory despite the slumping economy is a direct result of Mark’s financial vision and stewardship,” said Red Ventures co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer Dan Feldstein. “We congratulate him on this much-deserved honor and look forward to many more years of growth under his leadership.”
The CFO of the Year awards recognize outstanding chief financial officers in the Charlotte region. Finalists were selected based on their financial management skills, strategic thinking and a demonstrated commitment to fiscal integrity and accountability. Finalists and winners will be recognized at an awards luncheon on July 28 and will be featured in the July 31 edition of the Charlotte Business Journal.
