Titan CEO and headline sponsor Wipfli LLP are pleased to announce Kristin Stafford, Founder and CEO of Vital4, as a 2024 Georgia Titan 100. The Titan 100 program recognizes Georgia’s Top 100 CEOs and C-level executives. They are the area’s most accomplished business leaders in their industry, using criteria demonstrating exceptional leadership, vision, and passion. Collectively, the 2024 Georgia Titan 100 and their companies employ upwards of 125,000 individuals and generate over 31 billion dollars in annual revenues. 

“The Titan 100 are changing the way that business is done in Georgia. These preeminent leaders have built a distinguished reputation that is unrivaled and preeminent in their field. We proudly recognize the Titan 100 for their efforts to shape the future of the Georgia business community. Their achievements create a profound impact that makes an extraordinary difference for their customers and clients across the nation.” says Jaime Zawmon, President of Titan CEO.

Kristin is a successful serial entrepreneur and executive specializing in SaaS and enterprise platforms that support global compliance and background screening. She is the co-founder and CEO of Vital4, a global enterprise, cloud-based platform that uses proprietary AI and Machine Learning algorithms to aggregate data and provide instant data screening to support compliance, background screening, due diligence, and more on a global scale. She is the former co-founder, managing partner, and brainchild of the first global data screening platform adhering to the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Kristin ran the organization from the ground up into an acquisition-ready, multi-million-dollar business. Dun and Bradstreet acquired the platform she designed in 2021.

“I’m sincerely appreciative of the recognition as a Georgia Titan 100”, said Kristin Stafford, Founder and CEO of Vital4. “This honor is a testament to the incredible efforts of the entire Vital4 team and our commitment to innovation in Georgia. It’s inspiring to be among such accomplished business leaders who are shaping the future of the Georgia business community.”

This year’s honorees will be published in a limited-edition Titan 100 book and profiled exclusively online. They will also have the opportunity to interact and connect with fellow Titans multiple times throughout the year and be honored at an awards ceremony on May 9th, 2024, at Zoo Atlanta: Savanna Hall. One of the city’s most treasured historic buildings, the 1921 building, has been revitalized by Zoo Atlanta for its new life today. As the home of the Atlanta Cyclorama for more than 90 years, the building is famous for its grand scale and neoclassical architecture. This unique cocktail-style awards event will gather 100 Titans of Industry and their guests for an evening unlike any in the Georgia business community.

“On behalf of all the partners and associates at Wipfli, we congratulate all the Titan100 winners. It’s an honor to recognize this diverse group of leaders in the Atlanta community. We appreciate the lasting impact each leader has made and continues to make in building organizations of significance both in Atlanta and abroad. Your ingenuity and creativity have set you apart, and the honor of being seen as an industry Titan is richly deserved,” says Bill Boucher, Partner at Wipfli.
