Coastal Cloud Ranks Among Kentucky’s Best Places to Work

The Best Places to Work in Kentucky Program celebrates Coastal Cloud as the 3rd Best Place to Work Among Large Companies.

Coastal Cloud was recognized alongside 100 other companies at Kentucky’s Best Places to Work 19th Annual awards ceremony, celebrating the commitment these companies have made to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence. The Best Places to Work in Kentucky is a survey and awards program sponsored by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) in partnership with Workforce Research Group.

Ranking third among large companies in Kentucky, Coastal Cloud has been operating an office in Louisville since 2016 and the Lexington office opened in 2021. This is the first year the company has applied for the award which includes an extensive application process as well as an anonymous survey that is distributed to Kentucky-based employees and their supervisors.

Founded in 2012, Coastal Cloud is a Salesforce Expert Partner providing consulting, implementation and managed services for businesses, nonprofits, and the public sector. With a team of over 500 experts holding more than 1,700 Salesforce certifications, Coastal Cloud has been recognized by Salesforce for the past 3 years as the only winner of the Customer Success Award out of 2200 partners worldwide.

“As a Best Places to Work in Kentucky award winner, we are proud to represent the entrepreneurial spirit of this state. We are committed to continuing to build our business and contribute to the economic growth of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the country,” said Tim Hale, Coastal Cloud’s Co-Founder. 

Kentucky-based CRO, Erik Dunnigan, attended the ceremony to accept the award on behalf of Coastal Cloud. In his words, “We take great pride in cultivating a company culture that embraces flexibility and prioritizes quality of life for Kentuckians, as well as for the rest of our team nationally. At Coastal Cloud, we foster a diverse and inclusive environment, seeking individuals from different life stages, identities, races, genders, geographic backgrounds, industries, and life experiences. Surpassing industry standards, an impressive 47% of our workforce consists of women, and 45% of our leadership positions are held by these remarkable women. Our shared vision also deeply resonates with our clients, further fueling our commitment to excellence.”

Coastal Cloud also launched its first college internship program at the University of Kentucky in 2021 and has since hired many interns who have progressed through their Junior Analyst program. Learn more about careers at Coastal Cloud.

According to Kentucky Chamber President and CEO, Ashli Watts, “In order to help Kentucky’s economy thrive, we must be able to educate and employ current Kentuckians, while also creating workplaces that attract talent from outside of the state. The Best Places program does just that.”
