RevUnit Co-Founder and CTO Michael Paladino named Walton College Alumni Entrepreneur of the Year

RevUnit  is kicking off 2018 with reason to celebrate: Co-Founder and CTO  Michael Paladino has been selected as the University of Arkansas Sam M.  Walton College of Business 2018 Alumni Entrepreneur of the Year.

Each  year, the Walton College recognizes up to three deserving alumni in the  categories of service, entrepreneurship, and lifetime achievement.  According to school officials, nominations for each category are  welcomed from faculty, staff, and the alumni community at-large.  Ultimately, the award’s final approval comes from the dean with input  from faculty and staff.

The  Entrepreneur of the Year award recognizes a Walton College graduate who  has proven innovative and successful in a business venture of their own  creation, in particular businesses that have been successfully operating  for more than five years.

“I’m  excited and honored to be selected as the Walton College Alumni  Entrepreneur of the Year. I loved my time as a student and it’s been a  privilege to stay connected with students and staff through some of the  school’s great programs,” Michael said. “This award reflects what an  amazing place RevUnit has grown into -- and all the crazy-awesome people  that have joined my partner Joe Saumweber and me along the way.”

Michael’s  award builds on incredible momentum for RevUnit, which continues to  earn both regional and national recognition for its work helping  enterprise clients digitally transform their business. In August,  RevUnit was listed as one of the country’s fastest-growing businesses on  the Inc 5000 list.

RevUnit  was also named to the exclusive Entrepreneur 360 ranking of America’s  best privately-held companies in December, which recognizes top private  businesses that exemplify qualities like innovation, growth, and  leadership.

It’s not the  first time Michael has been individually recognized for his  entrepreneurial efforts and community involvement. In 2015, he was named  to the NWA Business Journal’s annual 40 Under 40 list, which identifies  outstanding young business people in Northwest Arkansas who have made  notable contributions in their respective industries.

Michael  will receive the Alumni Entrepreneur of the Year award at the annual  Walton College awards banquet on April 19, 2018, alongside other  award-winning Walton College students and alumni.
