EY Announces Kevin Hrusovsky, President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Quanterix and Founder of Powering Precision Health as an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2018 Award Finalist in the New England Region

Quanterix Corporation (NASDAQ:QTRX), a company digitizing biomarker analysis with the goal of advancing the science of precision health, today announced that Kevin Hrusovsky, President, Chairman and CEO of Quanterix, and Founder of Powering Precision Health (PPH), has been named by EY as a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2018 Award in the New England program. The recognition acknowledges Hrusovsky’s achievements in healthcare technology innovation, Quanterix’ outstanding financial performance, and his personal commitment to improving precision medicine and human health.

“We are honored to be recognized by EY for this award,” said Hrusovsky. “For me, this recognition represents the many people and institutions that we’ve been working with who are driving a precision health vision to eradicate and prevent some of today’s most lethal diseases, namely cancer, Alzheimer’s and infectious disease forward. It’s a privilege for us to be recognized alongside other entrepreneurs and business leaders who are all pioneers in their respective fields.”

Hrusovsky has a more than 25 year-long track record commercializing disruptive technologies in the life science industry. His impressive career has been propelled by a unique leadership style marked by transparency, passion, and purpose. Since joining Quanterix less than four years ago, Hrusovsky has transformed the company from one that lacked mission and direction into a successful public entity with industry-leading technology that has the power to transform the way we diagnose and treat disease. The key is his focus on putting science first. With Hrusovsky at the helm, Quanterix now has over 200 peer-reviewed publications backing the abilities of its Simoa technology, a significant industry accomplishment. He’s also expanded the applications for Simoa in the drug development industry, with 18 out of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies having used the technology to date in over 700 clinical trials.

Two years ago, Hrusovsky realized that more needed to be done to drive a true transformation in our healthcare system. As such, he launched PPH as a forum where all key stakeholders, from the world’s leading medical professionals and innovators to patients and patient advocates, could come together to share their latest research and truly revolutionize medicine. Now in its third year, PPH has sparked a true movement, one that puts science before profits and closely examines how we can prevent diseases, not just treat them. Today PPH has more than doubled in size and is considered the leading industry conference focused on advancing precision health.

Hrusovsky also serves on the Board of Directors of several companies shaping the future of precision health, including Quanterix, BioreclamationIVT, Cell Signaling Technology, 908 Devices, SynapDx and Solect Energy. He also serves on the Educational Board of the Massachusetts Biotech Council, the Advisory Committee for the Center for Biomedical Engineering at Brown University, the Association for Laboratory Automation, the JALA Editorial Board, and the Strategy Committee of Children’s Hospital Boston.

Hrusovsky was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 28, 2018 at the Westin Boston Waterfront. Now in its 32nd year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world.

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 10, 2018. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
