14 years ago, Michael Praeger, CEO and co-founder of AvidXchange, came to Charlotte, North Carolina to start a new software company. The company, which started in his basement, is now recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country.
AvidXchange automates the accounts payable process, providing one platform for clients to login to for anytime, anywhere access to all invoice and payment data. We revolutionize the way companies pay their bills.
We’re pleased to announce that AvidXchange was named as the #4 Large Company to work for in Charlotte by the Charlotte Business Journal! The award was announced at the CBJ’s Best Places to Work awards dinner at the Charlotte Convention Center this past Thursday.
The Charlotte Business Journal selects the winners for their Best Places to Work Award based on a combination of criteria that span from community involvement to employee perks, and an anonymous survey that is completed internally by each company’s employees. AvidXchange has received the award seven years in a row.
“I strongly believe that our rapid growth and ability to create cutting edge technology is directly correlated to our ability to acquire, and maintain, top talent,” stated Praeger. “It’s such an honor to receive this award from the Charlotte Business Journal for 7 years in a row, because it is an achievement that reflects our success with creating an atmosphere that provides our employees with opportunities to learn, grow, and advance,” added Praeger.
“AvidXchange has allowed me to grow as the company has grown,” said company employee, Christopher Elmore, who has been with the company for more than 15 years. “With the company so vested in my personal growth, I can’t imagine myself anywhere else,” added Elmore.
