TASKUS FOUNDERS NAMED WINNERS OF THE ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR® 2017 GREATER LOS ANGELES AWARDS
Last night, CEO Bryce Maddock and President Jaspar Weir, co-founders of business process outsourcing providers and masters of scale, TaskUs, were honored as this year’s Entrepreneur Of The Year for Greater Los Angeles. Maddock and Weir accepted the award at a gala attended by over 600 of L.A.’s leading founders, CEOs and business luminaries at the Beverly Hills Hilton.
“It’s been an honor to be recognized among so many of LA’s inspiring business leaders,” said Weir “Our vision was to bring the appeal and opportunity associated with tech companies to the backend staff. This award solidifies our belief that businesses will do good by doing good.” Weir was interviewed earlier this week for Inc.com about the TaskUs’ culture.
Maddock and Weir were recognized for their roles in driving the growth of TaskUs and the disruption they have created in the culture of the BPO space, putting employee experience at the forefront. Last year the company did just under $80 million in revenue, opened its first domestic call center and grew its team to over 8,000 people worldwide.
“The honor of this award from Ernst & Young isn’t something that only Jaspar and I can take credit for,” said Maddock, “this award belongs to all of the team members whose dedication makes our success possible.”
Maddock and Weir are now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be announced at the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, CA on November 18, 2017. The awards gala is the culminating event of the Strategic Growth ForumTM, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
