Appian CEO Named Executive of the Year Finalist in 2010 American Business Awards

Appian today announced that President and CEO Matthew Calkins has been named a Finalist in the 2010 American Business Awards in the category of Executive of the Year – Computer Software. Mr. Calkins is one of seven Finalists in his category.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit entries — public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. More than 2,700 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories.

Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and specialized final judging committees will select Stevie Award winners from among Finalists in final judging that will continue through May 28. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May.

Mr. Calkins’ recognition comes from his vision and leadership in driving Appian to the forefront of the BPM pure-play market. The Appian BPM Suite, the only 100% web-based BPM platform, combines rich user interfaces with simple model-driven design; a real-time process architecture enabling fast and unlimited reporting; service-oriented development to extend SOA initiatives; and a full set of process, analytics, content and collaboration capabilities. Appian Anywhere, the first and only complete BPM Platform-as-a-Service, delivers all the power of Appian via a low-cost, low-risk subscription model.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the American Business Awards,” said Mr. Calkins. “I am proud to be included in such an accomplished group of award Finalists.”
