Pasadena, May 4, 2023 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Jon Elliott, CEO of Bluebeam, Inc., was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Greater Los Angeles Award finalist. Now in its 37th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for transformative entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are building a more equitable, sustainable and prosperous world for all.
Elliott was selected by an independent panel of judges. Entrepreneurs were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.
“Being named a finalist for this award is an absolute honor,” said Elliott. “The fact that this award is centered around entrepreneurship is so fitting to the values and spirit of Bluebeam. It is our employees that make this company the incredible place it is through their fierce dedication to innovating on behalf of our customers. As our customers design and build the world we live in, we have always been inspired by their passion and the feedback loop they provide as we work to continuously improve how we serve them. Bottom line – without the creative global Bluebeam team that I am honored to lead and our ingenious customers that I am grateful to serve, I would not be a finalist for this award.”
Regional award winners will be announced on June 22, 2023, during a special celebration. The winners will then be considered by the national judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2024.
The Entrepreneur Of The Year program has recognized more than 11,000 entrepreneurs throughout the US since its inception in 1986, and it has grown to recognize business leaders across 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
Founded and produced by Ernst & Young LLP, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards include presenting sponsors PNC Bank, SAP America, and the Kauffman Foundation. In Greater Los Angeles, regional Platinum sponsors include Cresa, Edelman, Marsh and Tangram Interiors, and regional Gold sponsors include Big Picture, Cooley, C-Suite Media, and Los Angeles Business Journal.
