Michael Connolly Thrilled to Win the Entrepreneur of the Year Award
Sonobi recently announced that CEO & Founder, Michael Connolly, has been selected as the recipient of the Ernst & Young Florida Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Advertising and Marketing. The award recognizes the endeavors of exceptional men and women who create the products and services that keep the economy moving forward.
The program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate extraordinary success in innovation, financial performance, and commitment to their communities. The awards were given by a panel of independent judges at the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort in Orlando, Florida on 7th June.
“Business is a team sport and being selected as a winner recognizes the merit of what Sonobi has achieved so far. I’m thrilled to have received this award on behalf of the team’s hard work and determination to build this company,” said Connolly. “As Orlando, and the rest of Central Florida, begins to emerge as the country’s next great tech hub, we’re honored that Ernst & Young has given us this opportunity to show the progress being made by our company and our city. We’re proud to be able to plant a flag in Central Florida and prove that you don’t have to be located in New York or San Francisco to build a company that competes on a global scale.”
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards. 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. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner then moves on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Award in Monaco in June 2019.
