As we close out a great 2021, we wanted to share a bit of news to celebrate over the holidays. Topping Agiloft’s growing list of notable industry awards and recognition, our CEO Eric Laughlin landed a Gold Globee Winner in the 9th Annual 2021 CEO World Awards, being named CEO of the Year in the Business Products category.
The Globee Awards are a set of business award competitions organized annually to recognize outstanding accomplishments and contributions of companies and professionals worldwide. The awards are conferred in eleven programs, of which the CEO World Awards program celebrates the achievements of leaders, executives, and management teams who set industry benchmarks for excellence. Laughlin was recognized for his leadership in driving more than a 100% increase in customer bookings and 50% growth in annual recurring revenue for Agiloft throughout 2021.
Appointed CEO in August 2020 to spearhead Agiloft’s vision of growth after a $45 million equity investment, Laughlin brought over a decade of leadership experience running legal software and tech-enabled services business serving Fortune 1000 clients. Prior to Agiloft, Eric was the global leader of Legal Managed Services at Ernst & Young, LLP—but he was already familiar with Agiloft, as both customer and adviser. Eric Laughlin’s experience clearly shows, and he is just the right person to be at the helm. Bravo!
This award comes after Agiloft was named Contract Management Platform of the Year by LegalTech Breakthrough Awards. Agiloft was also ranked a top vendor in 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for CLM, as well as being named a leader in Gartner 2021 Magic Quadrant for Life Cycle Management. Additionally, we received a 2021 BIG Innovation Award and a recent Silver Stevie for Agiloft’s AI Core as well as Value Leader in Spend Matters’ Fall 2021 SolutionMap for Contract Lifecycle Management.
