NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pegasystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in business process management (BPM) software solutions, today announced that Founder and CEO Alan Trefler was named “Computer Software Executive of the Year” at the 2009 American Business Awards gala event, held June 22 in New York City. In addition, Pegasystems was named a finalist for Fastest-Growing Company of the Year.
Trefler was recognized for leading Pegasystems to new heights and record revenue growth of 31 percent during a year when other software and technology companies saw business slow dramatically.
