IRVINE, Calif., May 17, 2017 — EY today announced that Dean Stoecker, CEO and co-founder of Alteryx, Inc., is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017 Award in the Orange County Region. The awards program, which is celebrating its 31st year, recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Stoecker was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 16th at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA.
Alteryx, a leader in self-service analytics, was co-founded by Stoecker in 1997 as SRC, and later pivoted to Alteryx in 2010, where under his leadership, it became a public company in 2017. “I am honored and humbled to be included amongst some of the best and brightest business leaders in our region,” said Stoecker. “For decades, EY has championed entrepreneurship and business success, and I am thrilled to represent Alteryx as a finalist.”
Now in its 31st year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in over 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.
