2021, Alumni: Initial public offerings from Minnesota-based companies are few and far between, but the industry-leading enterprise software company went public in July at $26 per share. A tech industry veteran, Dean Hager has piloted Jamf’s strong and steady growth.
2020, Overachiever: Since Hager took over as CEO of Jamf in 2015, the software company has more than doubled in size while maintaining a substantial employee and customer retention rate. Jamf also made three acquisitions in the last year, transitioning from being solely a device management company to a provider of Apple-based tools with a variety of work and school applications. In 2020, Hager will look to complete integration of new assets and to continue building Jamf’s portfolio, particularly with investments in the education sector. With plans to increase the company’s workforce, he’ll also need to navigate the tight labor market.
