Ytel CEO Nick Newsom Wins Innovator of the Year Award

Award Presented by Orange County Business Journal

FOOTHILL RANCH, CA - 27 September, 2018 - Ytel, a leading edge software company that helps businesses engage more customers using multi-channel communications, announced CEO and Founder Nick Newsom has won the Innovator of the Year Award from the Orange County Business Journal. The award recognizes and celebrates Orange County business innovators who are creating game-changing ideas, processes, products, services and business models. Newsom was one of 70 nominees competing for the award.

"I feel deeply honored to receive this prestigious award from the Orange County Business Journal. As Ytel is a team-conscious company, our successful innovation results not just from my work but from the outstanding team that works with me," said Newsom. "Ytel innovates so well because we collaborate so well."

Talent Fueling Innovation; Innovation Fueling Growth

Nick Newsom founded Ytel in 2012 to help businesses better interact with customers through self-service software. Newsom also recruited top employee talent to help propel Ytel to the next level. "We really believed in the idea that complex software didn't have to be a burden or take months to be implemented," explains Newsom.

Newsom's vision and his company's pathbreaking work has paid off: Ytel has received congressional recognition for innovation in cloud communications as it has reached the milestone of 10 billion interactions on the Ytel network in a single year.

The company, meanwhile, has been selected by Entrepreneur magazine as one of America's fastest growing companies. In only four years, Ytel has grown from just a half a dozen employees to more than 100, necessitating a new 30,000+ square foot, state-of-the-art headquarters, supported by several other offices across the country to service customers.

Still leading from the cutting edge, Newsom is now focused on changing how companies use CPaaS (Communication Platform as a Service). "2018 has been a pivotal year for our company and Ytel is looking forward to continued growth and releasing exciting new innovations in 2019."
