NEW YORK, June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ernst & Young LLP (EY) has named TripleLift (www.triplelift.com) CEO and Co-Founder Eric Berry an Entrepreneur Of the Year® 2019 New York Award winner in the category of Marketing and Advertising. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in areas such as financial performance, innovation and commitment to their businesses and communities. Berry was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges and was recognized for his achievement at a special gala event on June 20, 2019, at the Marriott Marquis. 

“Entrepreneur Of The Year has a respected legacy of recognizing trailblazing leaders who are disrupting industries and changing the world at large. It is a great honor to be recognized by this prestigious award,” said Eric Berry.

Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., the program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world.

Founded in 2012, TripleLift is committed to integrating advertising seamlessly into content, creating a positive consumer experience. The company has been an industry leader in programmatic in-feed advertising, and over the past year, the company has launched new products to further support that mission including new in-content over-the-top (OTT) ad formats and predictive, scalable branded content. Between 2012 and 2017, the company had grown at least 3x each year, and in 2018, the company saw a 2x growth as it neared $100 million in revenue, earning it a position on the Crain’s New York 2018 Fast 50 list. As TripleLift continues to grow globally, earlier this year the company opened an office in Sydney, Australia to oversee its growing APAC business.

Now in its 33rd 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 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 16, 2019. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
