Yesterday Ernest & Young announced the finalists for the 2013 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year for the New England region – and Veracode’s very own Bob Brennan was on the list! The awards program recognizes high-growth entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Award winners will be announced at an event on Wednesday, June 26, 2013.
Since joining Veracode in late 2011, Bob has helped the company achieve record growth and continued innovation. With Bob at the helm, we achieved an impressive 78 percent year-over-year revenue growth in 2012, and became one of the hottest places to work in the Boston area, growing its employee base 73 percent year-over-year in 2012. We were recently named the 20th Most Promising Company in America by Forbes, one of Boston’s Hottest Tech Companies by BostInno and most recently included on the Red Herring Top 100 list. Bob’s inclusion on the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year further highlights our growth and innovation.
Now in its 27th year, the Entrepreneur of the Year Program has expanded globally to recognize company builders in over 140 cities and in more than 50 countries throughout the world.
