PORTLAND, OR (May 15, 2018)—Janrain®, the company that pioneered the Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) category, today announced Janrain CFO Martin Day will be honored at the Portland Business Journal CFO of the Year Awards ceremony this week. As a CFO of the Year honoree, Mr. Day has demonstrated a strong record of innovation, outstanding performance and a clear track record of meaningful community involvement. Mr. Day was chosen along with a handful of other financial professionals from more than 100 nominations after Janrain experienced record bookings in 2017, including doubling new customer wins and enjoying the largest single quarter bookings in the company’s 16-year history. Janrain continues its record-setting pace for growth in 2018 with Q1 bookings that were three times that of the prior year.
“I am truly honored to be recognized by the Portland Business Journal especially after Janrain experienced such incredible momentum in 2017, which set the stage for continued record setting growth in 2018,” said Janrain CFO Martin Day. “With such a talented employee base driving new product innovations and global expansion, supportive investors, and world-class customers, Janrain will continue setting the pace for the rest of the identity space.”
