Avalara’s McFarlane named ‘CEO of the Year’

Bainbridge Island-based Avalara has been making waves lately, and the tech world has taken notice.

News site GeekWire named Avalara executive Scott McFarlane “CEO of the Year” at its 2015 awards ceremony last week.

The site noted the $100 million investment Avalara recently received, which spurred even more growth at the 800-employee business.

According to GeekWire, McFarlane studied economics at Claremont McKenna College in California, and founded a fitness equipment company with his college roommate. He’s been with Avalara since its founding in 2004.

“I might be the luckiest person on earth,” McFarlane said in his acceptance speech. “I have great investors and great Avalarians that bleed orange every single day. This is for you guys.”

Avalara specializes in sales tax compliance software.
