2018 Transformational Leader of the Year

Keith Krach Eight Transformations

“We’re inspired by Keith Krach. It’s hard not to be. Everywhere he goes, his dynamism and enthusiasm light up the room. Everyone is energized in his electric aura—awed as he unabashedly shares some personal failure that taught a vital life lesson, or encouraged as he paints his vision of a brighter future. This at a time when negativity, pessimism, and division have overtaken so many.” –

“Three attributes stand out about Krach. “Character, as in, do the right thing; global vision; and then the third thing is joy. It’s so authentic it’s contagious.”

—Investor’s Business Daily

“Krach has become a category kingmaker, building four game-changing companies from robotics to engineering software to e-commerce to e-signature and digital transaction management, and all four companies are considered disruptors, became clear market leaders through category creation, generated significant shareholder value, and chose paper or manual processes as their main competitors.”

—Bruce Harreld, Harvard Business School’s former faculty chair of Building New Businesses
