Award Honors Progressive Customers for Dedication to Market Education

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 22, 2013) -  SilkRoad, a leading global provider of cloud-based social talent management solutions, today announced its 2013 SilkRoad Champions at the Company's fourth annual global user conference, SilkRoad Connections. The program recognizes Life Suite® software solutions customers at the leading edge of HR that have served as industry thought leaders and championed SilkRoad's product innovation.

"Our customers are advancing the HR agenda both at their own companies and on an industry level," said Edward Vesely, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer, SilkRoad.

Champions is our way of saying 'thank you' for every time a customer goes above and beyond."

For 2013, SilkRoad named Ulthera, a high-growth med-tech company, as its top SilkRoad Champion.
