Clear Measure CEO, Jeffrey Palermo, Named Finalist in 2015 Austin Under 40 Awards

Nomination Recognizes Palermo's Role in Helping to Grow Technology Industry, Provide Key Contributions to Austin Community

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2015) - Clear Measure, Inc., a leading software engineering firm, today announced that its CEO, Jeffrey Palermo, has been named as one of five finalists within the Technology & Start-Up category for this year's Austin Under 40 Awards (AU40).

Hosted by Austin's Young Women's Alliance (YWA) and the Young Men's Business League (YMBL), Austin Under 40 selected Palermo, a military veteran, as a finalist because of his role in helping to grow the software industry nationally, as well as locally, and his role as a strong citizen and business partner, committed to supporting Austin's growth through education, children's advocacy and other philanthropic initiatives.

"The Austin Under 40 recognizes the huge growth and innovation taking place in Austin. I'm very honored to be named a finalist for this prestigious award, among a distinguished group of technology and start-up professionals," said Palermo. "Clear Measure is very committed to giving back to the community and using our expertise and resources to help grow the technology profession. It's very exciting to help ignite interest in software engineering among young people in the area."

In two years under Palermo's leadership, Clear Measure has grown from two to 42 employees and continues to hire aggressively in the region. The company also has recently added a DevOps practice, DevOps Unlimited, to meet strong market demand for hosting, management and operations of software systems. Palermo is highly recognized as a leader in the software industry. He was named a Microsoft MVP every year since 2006, and has presented at numerous technology industry conferences nationally and internationally. He is a published author, with articles appearing in industry magazines, and co-author of the book, ASP.Net MVC in Action

Under Palermo's direction, Clear Measure embodies the definition of a good corporate citizen, generously donating to organizations such as the Austin Children's Shelter, the Texas Advocacy Project, Austin Young Life and other organizations; and also hosts the Humanitarian Toolbox Hack-a-thon, an event in which software professionals donate their time to write software for not-for-profit organizations free of charge. 

Winners of the 17th annual Austin under 40 Awards will be named at an event Saturday, March 7, 2015 at the JW Marriott in Austin. Since 1998, Austin's Young Women's Alliance and the Young Men's Business League have partnered to host Austin Under 40, one of the city's premier awards events, to recognize local citizens who both lead their respective industries and exhibit a solid commitment to serving their community. The individuals are recognized in 14 categories, including Technology & Startup.
