The leaders of some 20 Virginia companies—including one in Leesburg—are mid-Atlantic finalists for EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
The program recognizes entrepreneurs excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and commitment to their businesses and communities. Award winners, selected by a panel of independent judges, will be announced at a June 15 gala at The Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner.
One finalist is Rohyt Belani, cofounder and CEO of PhishMe in Leesburg. It provides phishing defense solutions for customers in the defense industrial base, energy, financial services, health-care and manufacturing industries.
In its 31st year, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world. Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur of The Year national program, which will be announced in November.
