Dan Guy, Co-Founder and CTO of Clutch, Named as Startup Tech Star in Philadelphia Business Journal’s 2014 Top IT Pros Awards

Clutch, a leading platform powering customer success for over 450 brands, today announced that Philadelphia Business Journal named Co-Founder and CTO Dan Guy as Startup Tech Star in its 2014 Top IT Pros Awards. The Startup Tech Star honors the person who drives an emerging company’s technological strategic direction and technological innovation.

“I see being an IT Pro as a validation of the team and company we’ve built at Clutch,” said Guy. “It’s a cliché to say that leaders are as strong as the teams they build, but I believe it and live it 100 percent. I wouldn’t be receiving this prestigious honor without everyone who puts their heart and soul into Clutch every day.”

Philadelphia Business Journal and Comcast Business sought top technology executives in Greater Philadelphia for the second annual Top IT Pros Awards. The awards event, which took place May 8, gathered influential executives from the region’s top technology companies for a morning of networking and an inspiring awards ceremony.

“Virtually no company these days can operate effectively without strategically using the latest technology,” said Craig Ey, editor-in-chief of Philadelphia Business Journal. “That’s why the PBJ is thrilled to honor the region’s Top IT Pros, the people who are driving this innovation. We’ve carefully selected a great group of passionate professionals who are key to making their companies successful.”
