SEATTLE, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- EY today announced that Manny Medina, CEO of Outreach, is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Pacific Northwest.

Manny was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 9, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.
As CEO of Outreach since 2013, Manny led the company through exponential growth—going from six employees in its first year to nearly 170 today while also tripling revenue over the past three years. Ushering in another record year, by the end of 2017 Outreach is projecting to double its workforce in order to keep up with the rising demand for its services, which provide a system of action for sales teams through empowering reps to meet today's ever-rising quotas and revenue targets. Customers including CenturyLink, Pandora, and Glassdoor look to Outreach to gain 1-2 more hours of productive, active selling per day/per sales rep, resulting in up to 30 percent more secured meetings and up to 25 percent more revenue.
"From moving to the US for college, to cutting my teeth in the tech industry at two influential giants—Microsoft and Amazon, to where I am today as CEO and co-founder of Outreach, I can't begin to express what an honor it is to be selected as a finalist for EY's Entrepreneur Of The Year Award," said Medina. "Today, I'm privileged to lead Outreach, a company comprised of top tech talent whose tenacity and ingenuity has propelled the growth and development of the company to become one of the fastest growing SaaS businesses in the industry. This award is not just a personal honor, but a major achievement for every member of the Outreach team."
