  1. From a small start-up to a globally renowned company, Dan has spearheaded significant growth at Igloo over the past year. Over the last 11 years, Igloo has experienced tremendous growth and today hosts over 10,000 digital workplaces globally, in over 80 countries. Igloo‘s momentum coincides with greater awareness by organizations of the widespread shortcomings in workplace knowledge sharing, communication, collaboration, and employee engagement. To address these issues, and to create new opportunities for improved productivity, leading organizations are looking to next-gen intranets as a way to create a digital destination for their employees and deploy digital workplace solutions specifically designed to address their line of business challenges. In the past 18 months, Igloo Software was named one of the Fastest Growing Companies in North America on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ list for the fourth consecutive year, identified as an Aragon Research Hot Vendor in Communications and Collaboration, selected for the Constellation ShortList for Employee Digital Workspaces and Corporate Intranets Platform, featured in Microsoft’s Great Canadian Innovators Yearbook, and was chosen for KMWorld’s Trend-Setting Product list for the past three years as well as the Top 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management for the past nine consecutive years.
