Typically, when AdRoll takes home an award, our CEO, Aaron Bell, takes to the blog to congratulate the hard-working team here at ShangRolla and to thank our loyal customers who make it all possible. However, because he’s the one taking home the award today, I’m going to do the writing!

I’m super excited to announce that Aaron has been named 40 Under 40 by the San Francisco Business Times. And, for the record, he’s 34.9 years old. He hasn’t aged that much since earning Forbes’s Most Promising CEO’s Under 35 last month.

For those of you that don’t know much about Aaron, he is an incredibly humble and hands-on CEO. Here at AdRoll, he does much more than just lead with a bold vision. He drives innovation, scopes exciting new opportunities for the company, finds new and cultivates existing talent, hosts a wildly entertaining Friday all-hands and, perhaps most importantly, always finds time for each member of the team. He’s not one for awards or self- promotion, but I know this one means a lot — especially given that San Francisco is AdRoll’s home base.

So, if you see him around, congratulate him on the award! In the meantime, we’ll get back to building the best platform in ad tech.
