We’re proud to announce that Sprout Social founder and CEO, Justyn Howard, has been recognized as a Glassdoor Top CEO for U.S. companies with 1,000 employees or less in 2018. This is the second year in a row that Glassdoor has named Justyn to the list and it is especially exciting as the honor is based entirely on reviews from Sprout employees, who awarded him a 99% approval rating.

Justyn is a leader whose vision not only drives the growth of our business, but also inspires our team to do and be better each day. He is committed to a culture of openness and has worked tirelessly alongside our executives to create a workplace where team members are empowered to share their ideas, work collaboratively and embrace the diverse qualities and characteristics that make each employee unique. This has helped Sprout to maintain a close-knit, yet scalable culture that has developed organically over time.

“Being named to this list for a second year is a true honor and I am grateful to the team for their steadfast belief in our vision for the business and product,” Howard said. “I’m as excited about Sprout’s future as I was eight years ago when we started, and that is due in no small part to the nearly 500 team members that show up ready to tackle the toughest problems in the industry each day, while continuing to provide great value for our customers.”
