Alum Named to Fortune 40 Under 40

PROVO, Utah – Sep 22, 2016 – Qualtrics CEO and Marriott School of Management alum Ryan Smith has been named to Fortune’s 2016 40 Under 40, the publication's annual ranking of the most influential young people in business.

"Smith isn’t your typical tech entrepreneur: His online survey company is based in Provo, Utah, and his cofounders are not fellow techies but include his dad and brother," Fortune writes. "After bootstrapping for more than a decade, Smith has now raised $220 million in funding. The company’s swanky new offices (ice cream parlor, basketball hoop) might sound right out of Silicon Valley, but unlike many of ­today’s startups, Smith’s is already profitable—and ­expected to go public in the next year or two. Fan of: Diet Mountain Dew."
