The honors and awards just keep coming for Reggie Aggarwal, a 1994 graduate of Washington and Lee's School of Law and the founder and CEO of Cvent, a cloud-based event-management platform headquartered in McLean, Va.
Reggie was honored as CEO of the Year by the Washington Business Journal, which selected him from a list of the 50 Most Admired CEOs.
In a news release from Cvent, Reggie said: "I'm extremely honored and humbled to have been chosen for this prestigious recognition from a group of notable CEOs from such prominent companies. This award is a huge milestone for the entire company, and it really is a testament to all of our employees' hard work and dedication since the company started 14 years ago."
This is WBJ's first annual Most Admired CEO program, which honors executives in the greater Washington area for innovation in their field, outstanding financial performance, commitment to quality and diversity in the workplace, and contributions to the local community. Reggie will receive his CEO of the Year award in December.
Meantime, Cvent was honored with a silver Golden Bridge award in the Company Growth of the Year category. The Golden Bridge awards are an annual worldwide industry and peers recognition program that honors companies for growth, innovation, expansion and social responsibility.
Reggie also received the bronze award in the highly competitive Executive of the Year category of the Golden Bridge Awards.
