Ann Arbor, Mich., July 1, 2013 – John W. Stout, founder and President of Stout Systems, was named the Overall Winner of Corp! Magazine's 2013 Entrepreneurs of Distinction awards. The Michigan-focused business publication honored Mr. Stout, along with 15 other Michigan entrepreneurs, on June 27 at its Premier Awards Breakfast and Symposium held at the VisTaTech Center in Livonia, MI.
In recognizing Mr. Stout as the Overall Winner, Corp! Magazine noted "Sometimes technology isn't quite enough, even when the company is a software development and staffing company. In the case of Stout Systems, it's human intelligence that makes the difference and John Stout, the firm's president, is where that comes into play."
Mr. Stout attributes his company's success to an emphasis on intelligent solutions that first address human elements, with technology choices made to serve those elements. As a result, Stout Systems has seen steady growth in its national client base since its incorporation in 1997, even as the business climate challenged companies just to stay alive.
"I am proud to receive this award," said Mr. Stout. "I must recognize the executives and employees of Stout Systems and acknowledge their significant contributions to our success—they all deserve to be awarded."
He added, "I also deeply appreciate the work that all Michigan entrepreneurs are doing to help Michigan and its people. They are bringing our state the worldwide recognition it deserves."
