In May, Reggie Aggarwal, a 1994 graduate of W&L’s School of Law and founder and CEO of Cvent, was honored by the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS), which presented him its Distinguished Corporate Achievement Award.
This latest recognition comes a year after Reggie was named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the Greater Washington area and was also selected as one of the “Top Tech Titans” by the Washingtonian magazine.
When he founded the business 10 years ago, Cvent was a local startup company in the D.C. area. Today, the company is global and has more than 600 employees who provide online event management, venue sourcing tools and web survey solutions in 29 countries. Marriott Meeting News, the largest magazine in the industry, named Reggie one of the 25 most influential people in the $100 billion dollar meetings industry.
In addition to all this, Reggie founded and is now chairman emeritus of the Indian CEO High Tech Council, which the Washington Post called “maybe the singularly most successful association in the past decade.”
