Neptune, N.J. (May 6, 2016) – EY announced that WorkWave® CEO Chris Sullens is a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 Award in New Jersey.
The EY awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Chris Sullens was selected as a finalist by a panel of judges. Award winners will be announced at a gala on June 23 at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Now in its 30th year, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities across more than 60 countries worldwide.
Sullens’ EOY nomination stemmed from his ability to drive change and execute on the vision he crafted after joining WorkWave in 2008. Since that time, WorkWave has profitably grown revenue and employee count over 500 percent and transitioned from a traditional single-industry software provider to a multi-industry software-as-a-service leader by transforming its application to solve the office efficiency, field productivity and marketing insight issues that its clients face daily.
“I am honored by this prestigious recognition and consider it a testament to our team’s ability to innovate and execute on our vision continuously,” said Sullens. “WorkWave would not be where it is today without the work of our talented team members, our loyal clients and our valuable partners. Together we are transforming the way work is done in the field service and last-mile delivery industries.”
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on Nov. 19. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, a gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
