SILICON SLOPES, UT — February 26, 2015 — Workfront the leading provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solutions, today announced that John Knotwell, Vice President, Sales, was recognized by Utah Business Magazine as one of the “Forty under 40.” The 13th annual Forty Under 40 program honors Utah's up-and-coming professionals rising through the ranks at record speed.
“John is a key member of our sales leadership team and is well-deserving of being included in this elite category of business professionals within the state of Utah,” said Eric Morgan, CEO of Workfront. “Since joining Workfront in 2012, John has been a key part of building the Workfront sales organization and making it as successful as it is today.
