KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON – July 25, 2018 – Igloo Software, the leading provider of digital workplace solutions, announced today that its Founder & CEO, Dan Latendre, was named a CEO Awards winner by Finance Monthly Magazine.
Every year, the Finance Monthly CEO Awards celebrate the success, innovation, and strategic vision of CEOs across a wide variety of sectors and industries globally. The award recognizes some of the most hard-working, ambitious, and forward-thinking CEOs in the corporate world today. Winners include CEOs who have been instrumental in achieving their companies’ desired aims and driving their businesses forward.
Drawing on his wealth of experience, Dan successfully led Igloo from a start-up to a globally recognized company, now experiencing explosive growth. In 2015, Igloo was named to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the seventh year in a row, and in 2018 it was named to KMWorld’s list of 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management for the eighth consecutive year. Igloo has also been named to Deloitte’s Fast 50 (2015) and Fast 500 (2015-2017) – recognized as one of the fastest growing technology companies in Canada and North America, respectively.
“We’ve come a long way at Igloo Software, and I’m proud of the progress we’ve made over the last several years,” said Latendre. “It’s an honor to be recognized by Finance Monthly for our hard work, and this recognition should really include all of our employees. This would not be possible without them consistently devoting themselves to excellence and innovation.”
Most recently, Igloo secured a USD$47M funding round, spearheaded by Dan’s direction for the company. In 2017, Igloo solutions were powering digital workplaces of leading organizations in over 80 countries, and the Igloo platform surpassed one billion monthly interactions across their enterprise base of customers. Igloo concluded fiscal year 2017 with a 75% increase in new business, 51% percent overall growth, and 229% year over year net new business growth in Q4. Last year it also added more than 190 new top brands across healthcare, hi-tech, financial services, retail, hospitality, and not-for-profit to its growing base of enterprise customers.
“This is another milestone in a few very successful years,” Latendre added. “We compete in a market that is projected to be $10.7 billion by 2021, and we’re continuing to solidify our presence as a market leader.”
