Smartsheet Named to Inc. Magazine’s First Annual Best-Led Companies List
BELLEVUE, Wash, November 2, 2021 – Smartsheet, the enterprise platform for dynamic work, has been named to Inc. magazine’s first annual list of Best-Led Companies. The list honors management excellence across U.S. public and private companies with revenue of $50 million to $2 billion. Smartsheet’s leadership team was recognized for building a supportive and collaborative culture, inspiring a customer-centric mindset, and steering the company to become a leader in collaborative work management.
“We’re honored that Smartsheet was recognized by Inc. as a Best-Led Company,” said Mark Mader, president and CEO of Smartsheet. “This award is a reflection of our team’s commitment to supporting each other and passion for empowering our customers to achieve more. I’m incredibly proud of our team’s ability to stay agile and help our customers thrive in a rapidly changing work environment while maintaining a vibrant, connected company culture.”
To compile the list, Inc. used an algorithm to evaluate nominated companies according to their leadership teams’ accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent; and leadership team. The final list recognizes 250 companies that are agile enough to maneuver but also big enough to have a broad impact.
“This inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable midsized companies, both public and private, often founder led, that are at the vanguard of reinventing American business,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. magazine. “With their leadership, all business will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities.”
This award is the latest in a series of accolades praising Smartsheet’s positive company culture and leading market position. Earlier this month, Smartsheet and its Digital Asset Management offering, Brandfolder, were recognized as leaders on G2’s Grid for Project and Portfolio Management Software and Grid for Digital Asset Management Software. WRK+ Australia also recently named Smartsheet one of the best places to work in Australia.
