KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON – Aug. 22, 2018 – Igloo Software, the leading provider of digital workplace solutions, announces its founder and CEO, Dan Latendre, is named one of the Top 50 SaaS CEOs of 2018 by The SaaS Report.
The annual Top 50 list recognizes SaaS and software-industry leaders who made a notable impact on their company and achieved significant successes in the last year. The SaaS Report received more than 5,000 nominations and selected the top leaders based on integrity, drive, intelligence, energy, company culture, company growth, and ability to maintain a highly productive workplace culture. This recognition by The SaaS Report puts Mr. Latendre in very good company with top CEOs from some of today’s most innovative software companies such as HubSpot, Slack, and Dropbox.
From a small start-up to a globally renowned company, Dan has spearheaded significant growth at Igloo Software over the past year. At the start of 2018, the company secured USD$47M in funding and continued to expand its global footprint to more than 80 countries. Last year, it added more than 190 new customers across a variety of industries, and has exceeded 1 billion digital workplace interactions per month across its portfolio of solutions. Igloo Software closed out fiscal year 2017 with a 75 percent increase in new business, 51 percent overall growth and 229 percent year-over-year net new business growth in Q4.
“Igloo Software’s success wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated team of hardworking and innovative Iglooites who consistently challenge the status quo,” said Latendre. “I’m honored to be recognized by The SaaS Report for our hard work and accomplishments, but this award is shared by all of our employees including our leadership team at Igloo. It’s their commitment to excellence that keeps us growing.”
Earlier this year, Dan was also recognized as a CEO Awards Winner by Finance Monthly Magazine. His leadership has helped Igloo become a prominent industry player and one of the fastest growing technology companies in Canada and North America, recognized by Deloitte’s Fast 50 (2015) and Fast 500 (2015-2017) lists. Most recently, Igloo was named to the Top 100 North America companies by Red Herring.
