LOS ANGELES – January 25, 2018 – Therese Tucker, founder and CEO of financial automation software provider BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL), was honored yesterday by the ACG 101 chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth at the organization’s 7th annual Women in Corporate Growth Luncheon.
Each year at the luncheon, ACG 101 acknowledges a leading female executive who has demonstrated outstanding performance and leadership in both her business, as well as in the community. This year, Ms. Tucker was recognized for building BlackLine from the ground up into a leader in its space (including an October 2016 IPO) and also for her commitment to serving her community as demonstrated by the holiday initiative she led to clothe 50,000 homeless people in Los Angeles.
Finance and Accounting professionals in more than 130 countries around the world now use BlackLine’s cloud platform to automate traditionally manual, labor-intensive and spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation and financial close processes. In addition, BlackLine has made the Software 500 list of the “largest and best performing software and service providers in the world” for the seventh year in a row and also the prestigious Inc. 500/5000 for nine consecutive years, joining the ranks of such companies as Jamba Juice, Microsoft and Patagonia.
During the ACG luncheon, Tucker was interviewed in a fireside chat format by CNBC Special Correspondent Jane Wells. Proceeds from the event will benefit A Place Called Home, a local organization selected by Tucker.
