More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
The panel of judges particularly remarked on Vattikuti’s ability to drive Altimetrik’s phenomenal success in a crowded and fast-changing market while balancing the company’s commitment to diversity in hiring and investment in the local communities near its offices worldwide. Beyond the strong business performance, Raj Vattikuti’s ongoing personal philanthropic work through the Vattikuti Foundation and Altimetrik’s commitment to living its values made Vattikuti stand out as an entrepreneur.
