Rob Hull founded Adaptive Planning to fundamentally change the way finance and executive teams worldwide plan and manage their businesses.

Judges critiqued Adaptive Planning in the following categories: rapid growth, operational efficiency, strategic acquisition or divestiture, capital structure improvement, strategic partnerships, and implementation of best practices.

An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the coveted annual Hot Companies and Best Products recognition program encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, products and services, hot technologies, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.

"This esteemed industry and peer award recognition as both Finance Executive of the Year and Founder/Entrepreneur of the Year is a great honor," said Rob Hull, Founder, President, and CFO of Adaptive Planning. "These awards further validate Adaptive Planning's leading position in the cloud-based CPM space and underscore the key role that we're playing in helping customers worldwide successfully transform their financial management."
