Klaus attributes his win to the more than 3,000 Epicor employees around the world who are dedicated to excellence at Epicor every day. Our success as a company is a direct result of Epicors employees who, day in and day out, are committed to delivering world-class software, service and support to our customers, said Klaus. I have been fortunate to work with a talented and dynamic management team and a broad range of gifted employees throughout the world, all of whom share my vision of success and have contributed to significant annual revenue and profitability growth at Epicor. It is an honor to be recognized by the business community through the American Business Awards program.
Klaus and Epicor have received numerous awards and recognition in the past, including a 2008 AeA High-Tech Award for Outstanding Public Company, Fortune magazines 100 Fastest-Growing Companies of 2006, and a 2008 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Technology Council of Southern California. Klaus was also recently recognized as a finalist in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2008 Awards program in the Orange County and Desert Cities region.
