SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Periscope Data, the world’s first software platform built to address the complete analytics lifecycle, announced today that its CEO and co-founder Harry Glaser has been named as the top ranked CEO in San Francisco by Comparably.com.
Comparably’s ratings reflect employee perspectives on the CEO’s leadership style and effectiveness. With a 95/100 rating, Glaser’s ranking places Periscope Data above every large company nationwide on the list, including tech giants Salesforce, Intuit and LinkedIn. Glaser is also listed as the top ranked San Francisco-based CEO and third nationally among all small-to-mid-sized businesses.
“As we continue to expand and improve our product offerings, we’ve stayed true to our vision of making this a people-first environment,” said Harry Glaser, CEO. “This award is a great reflection of the dedication we’ve made to building our positive and inclusive company culture. I’m honored to be working with some of the best talent in the industry to improve our products and satisfy our customers, but just as important is creating a work environment we can be proud of, and that is a positive contribution to our industry.”
In addition to its high CEO rating, Periscope Data was also named to Comparably’s Best Companies for Women list, and ranked in the top 5 percent of companies for employee happiness, leadership, retention, executive team, compensation, work culture and diversity. Glaser has built the company with diversity and inclusion as core values to support a collaborative, dynamic culture, which has led to several industry recognitions including a “2017 Best Places to Work” award from the San Francisco Business Times.
“The CEOs included in Comparably’s annual Best CEOs list ranked among the highest rated leaders across thousands of CEOs. Most notably, this award came directly from the contribution of their own employees and ratings across multiple dimensions from a diverse talent pool of various departments, genders and backgrounds,” said Jason Nazar, CEO at Comparably.com. “It’s an honor for Harry Glaser to rank near the top of the 2017 Best CEOs list, reflecting Periscope Data's place among the great teams and company cultures these leaders have helped to foster.”
