Accuvant, the authoritative source for enterprise information security, today announced that co-founders Dan Burns and Dan Wilson were named finalists for the EY Entrepreneur of the YearTM 2014 Award in the Mountain Desert Region. The award recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
“The first step to being a successful entrepreneur is to identify a market need and have a vision for how to address it, but it’s equally important to have an actionable plan to turn that idea into a reality,” said Dan Burns, Accuvant’s chief executive officer. “We are proud that we have realized our vision to combine industry-leading technology with expert consulting services to address the information security needs of enterprise-class organizations. It’s exciting to see the professional and personal risks we and many others have taken are paying off.”
“We are honored to be named EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalists for building our company into the successful organization it is today,” said Dan Wilson, Accuvant’s senior vice president of partner solutions. “This recognition is as much a testament to our hard-working and passionate employees and partners as it is to us. We’re really excited to take Accuvant to the next level and looking forward to helping global companies around the world plan, build and run more successful security programs.”
Now in its 28th year, the EY Entrepreneur of The Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world. Accuvant’s co-founders were selected as 2014 finalists by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 26, 2014 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
