Owler, the largest community-based business insights platform just announced that our very own Laurent Dhollande of CloudVO has been named one of the Top CEO’s in the country and 3rd in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
In determining the winners, Owler looked at over 160,000 CEO’s and identified the top 1,000 highest ranked leaders amongst 50 cities and 25 industries across the globe. As a recipient of the award, Laurent ranks in the top 0.60% of all the executives on the Owler platform, a pretty amazing accomplishment that speaks to the quality of our CEO. Karina Patel, CloudVO Marketing Director said, “It’s no surprise to us, but in our Silicon Valley bubble, which is a magnet for all types of charismatic CEOs, this is an incredible achievement.”
Owler has an active community of over one million business professionals and is one of the largest crowdsourcing sites used by business-folk and investors to gain insights into their industry’s competition. Only LinkedIn has a larger business community. Members from the Owler community are asked to vote on targeted questions via email or by browsing the site. Owler collects the anonymous responses and uses them to offer unique competitive analysis to its members such as who the main players are in a particular industry including their niche competitors, private company revenue estimates, comparison of marketing content in the form of blog posts and general media, estimated number of employees, and performance benchmarks such as CEO approval ratings.
Owler rated Laurent as third best CEO in the San Francisco area and gave him the best rating of any other CEO in our industry. CloudVO currently has 255 followers on Owler, which lists WeWork, Breather, Liquidspace, and Davinci, among others, as top competitors.
Congratulations to Laurent for this Owler recognition! We are very proud of you.
