Ernst & Young names Stephanie Leffler and Ryan Noble as finalists in its 2013 Entrepreneur of the Year awards program – the most prestigious business award program for entrepreneurs.
Ernst & Young annually recognizes business leaders whose contributions inspire people with their leadership, vision and achievement. Each finalist from the Central Midwest region in this year’s Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards program grew their individual company’s employment numbers by over 12% in 2012 and revenues by 24% between 2010 and 2012.
“The Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards program has a longstanding history of honoring the best of the best in the business world. We are honored to be recognized alongside so many outstanding entrepreneurs,” noted Leffler, co-founder of Juggle.com.
Juggle’s co-founders Stephanie Leffler and Ryan Noble fit the bill for a leadership tandem that successfully develops long-term strategy and seizes growth opportunities. Leffler and Noble founded Juggle.com in the spring of 2008. As opportunities were recognized, they quickly grew Juggle.com from a reference resource website employing 10 team members to an umbrella company housing three successful tech companies: CrowdSource, ROIMedia and ClickableNames.
Noble and Leffler have since built a talented, creative internal team of 50+ members who are dedicated to building websites, software and services to help businesses save time and money. “We are continually motivated to find ways to leverage speed and scale to solve internal business problems,” noted Noble, co-founder of Juggle. “The ability to remain forward-thinking and strive to make process improvements is a daily goal within our company.”
Leffler has been previously honored as one of the Saint Louis Business Journal’s Most Influential Business Women and was a nominee in the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2012. In 2004, Noble was profiled as one of the St. Louis Business Journal’s “30 under 30” young entrepreneurs.
Based in Swansea, Illinois, Juggle is a technology company composed of 50 team members who build successful businesses by leveraging speed, scale and data. Juggle’s portfolio companies include crowdsourcing company CrowdSource.com, domain name aftermarket sales company ClickableNames.com and online publishing and search engine optimization group ROIMedia.
