Sopheon CEO wins Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Sustained Leadership
MINNEAPOLIS and LONDON—April 11, 2017—Sopheon, the international provider of software, expertise, and best practices for Enterprise Innovation Performance, is pleased to announce that it was recently recognized in the UK Stock Market Awards.
The UK Stock Market Awards acknowledge publicly-listed firms in the United Kingdom for truly creating shareholder value. Sopheon’s CEO, Andy Michuda, who is located at US corporate headquarters in Bloomington, Minnesota, was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year, a new category to the program.
As stated on the UK Stock Market Awards website:
“This new category will recognize highly respected individuals that have demonstrated a continued leadership of their businesses. While the management structure around them will have expanded and grown to the demands of running a publicly listed company, the energy and spirit which helped them succeed in the early days will still be evident.”
Andy Michuda responded to the acknowledgement:
“This award is particularly meaningful as it validates the vision, purpose and performance Sopheon’s founding leadership has had since inception of the company. I am grateful to be surrounded by such a longstanding, dedicated leadership team. Each one has played a critical role in Sopheon’s development.”
The founding members of Sopheon’s management team include Barry Mence, Chairman of the Board; Arif Karimjee, CFO; Huub Rutten, Innovation Thought Leader; and Paul Heller, CTO.
