New York, February 4, 2015 – Reval Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder Jiro Okochi was recognized in an awards ceremony here last week for growing his company into the leading global provider of cloud Treasury and Risk Management (TRM) solutions. SmartCEO magazine awarded Okochi with a 2015 Future 50 Award, which recognizes the region’s 50 fastest-growing mid-sized companies.
The Future 50 are companies that have experienced outsized growth based on a combined three-year average of revenue and employee growth. Collectively, the winners generate $2.65 billion in annual revenue and employ 12,508 individuals in the Greater New York area.
“The smartest thing I did as a CEO was to find smart, highly motivated people who care about the quality of their work and who like to collaborate with our clients,” Okochi said. “I am proud of what we have accomplished together and am excited about our opportunities ahead.”
According to SmartCEO, the Future 50 companies represent the future of the region’s economy and embody the entrepreneurial spirit critical for leadership and success. “Entrepreneurs built this country and formed the foundation of the communities in which we all live and work. And through continued hard work, dogged determination and an unwavering will to succeed, they are constructing the bright future that is in store for us right before our eyes. Under CEO Jiro Okochi’s leadership, Reval is one such company that is contributing to the Greater New York economy with its double-digit growth, making it a stellar example of this year’s winners,” says SmartCEO representative Jaime Nespor-Zawmon.
The Future 50 winners are profiled in the January/February issue of SmartCEO magazine, established to educate and inspire the business community.
