I’m pleased 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 2019. This is the third year in a row that Justyn has been placed on the list and is a reflection of the supportive culture we’ve been able to establish and maintain at Sprout. Recognition from Glassdoor is entirely based on reviews from Sprout employees who share their thoughts about job and company satisfaction, senior leadership and company culture.

Justyn is a strong leader for many reasons, but what he’s most known for internally is his contagious empathy. His ability to put himself in the shoes of our customers and our team informs every decision he makes. Keeping both of these perspectives in mind allows him to drive the business forward while simultaneously providing ample opportunity for personal and professional growth for our team members.

“We have two primary objectives at Sprout: to help our people and our customers thrive,” said Howard. “These two objectives reinforce each other and are critical to the success of our business. I’m honored to work with a team that is so committed to our people and to be recognized by Glassdoor for the work we do.”

Over the past year, we’ve scaled our team to almost 600 employees, expanded our international footprint within the EMEA region and have earned the trust of over 20,000 customers. Amidst this rapid growth, Justyn has maintained a 99.9% CEO approval rating and an overall company rating of 4.8. His direction is the glue that holds our team together and has allowed us to embrace every change along the way.

So, what does #TeamSprout have to say about our CEO?
