Oklahoma Magazine Names QuiBids a Great Company to Work For

Posted by Matt Carney under Press Releases

Oklahoma City, OK — December 18, 2012 —, the world’s leading entertainment retail auction, was recently honored by Oklahoma Magazine as one of its Great Companies to Work For in 2012. Of the 27 companies highlighted in the magazine’s December issue, QuiBids was the fourth smallest employer and the only online-exclusive retailer.

“As such a young company it’s a huge honor for us to be included among so many of our state’s most reputable businesses,” said Jill Farrand, QuiBids’ director of public relations.

The magazine’s criteria for determining its Great Companies to Work For included an online application process, panel review, consultation with “leading business interests and organizations in the state,” and the review of similar studies of Oklahoma employers, according to its December issue. Other honorees included Reasor’s Foods, Kimray, and Goodyear Tire & Rubber.

QuiBids was established by Chief Executive Officer Matt Beckham and Chief Technology Officer Shaun Tilford in 2009 when they were 27 and 25, respectively. The first official company office was Beckham’s Oklahoma City apartment before they hired more employees and moved into a space in Leadership Square in downtown. Now QuiBids employs about 150 people who do business on two floors of a class-A office building.

Previously QuiBids was twice named one of Oklahoma’s Best Places to Work by okcBIZ magazine. It finished fourth among small- and medium-sized companies in 2011, and third in 2012. QuiBids received a Best in Class distinction from the Interactive Media Awards this year, and was also named as an American Business Awards Finalist.
