PORTLAND, Ore., April 18, 2019 – Exterro® Inc., the preferred provider of software specifically designed for in-house legal and IT teams at Global 2000 and AmLaw 200 organizations, along with EY, today announced that Bobby Balachandran, CEO at Exterro is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the Pacific Northwest region.
Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., the program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world. Bobby Balachandran was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special black tie gala event on Friday, June 14 at the King Street Ballroom & Perch in Seattle, Washington.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by EY as an Entrepreneur of the Year finalist, but really, the whole team at Exterro has earned it. I don’t think of entrepreneurship as an individual endeavor. It’s really all about assembling the right collection of colleagues and experts and empowering them to do their best work,” said Balachandran.
Now in its 33rd year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.
