Carine Clark, President & CEO, MaritzCX, Named EY Entrepreneur of The Year® 2016 Finalist in the Utah Region
SALT LAKE CITY, April 18, 2016 – MaritzCX, a global customer experience (CX) software and services company, today announced that Carine Clark, President & CEO, has been named by EY as a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 Award in the Utah Region.
The awards program, which is celebrating its 30th year, recognizes talented entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Clark was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City on June 4, 2016.
“It’s a real honor to be among the finalists for this prestigious award, but the honor is truly one that must be shared with everyone at MaritzCX who has worked tirelessly with me to build a culture and implement a strategy to support a new kind of customer experience organization,” said Clark.
In just two years, Clark merged two successful, independent businesses to form the first – and the world’s largest – company to offer CX solutions with a fully integrated mix of technology, services, and expertise. Much of her early attention focused on forging a healthy, productive culture for the new organization while keeping the entrepreneurial spirit alive. Today MaritzCX has more than 500 clients, and more than 1.6 million people currently use the MaritzCX subscription software platform.
Now in its 30th year, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 19, 2016. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
