CallCopy wins 2010 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year award

Yesterday evening I had the honor of accepting the award for the 2010 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. The award is considered by many as the equivalent of the Grammy’s for entrepreneurship.

This is a big win for CallCopy. Although I am named on the award, this is truly an award for the company, its owners, and of course our family of employees. It is a culmination of the hard work, dedication, and passion that we all have to each other and to our customers.

It seems like it was just yesterday that our founding team Jeff Canter, Rick Daley, Patrick Hall, Mark Studer, Tarne Tassniyom and I joined forces to promote and grow what at that time was just a software application called CallCopy. Out of sacrifice we, and our families, dedicated valuable time and sweat equity to create a company that at its core is about having an excellent work environment, passion for our customers and each other, and constant innovation.

Without our employees this would not have been possible. We are blessed to have a team who strives towards those same core values each and every day; a team that constantly goes above and beyond without expecting or asking for gratitude, and a team that won’t allow internal barriers inhibiting the delivery of service based on the highest standards in our industry.

CallCopy has grown significantly over the past several years. Financially we have doubled year over year in revenues while remaining profitable and only taking on a small amount of debt in regards to the build out of our new facility. Although this is an indicator of strength, the true strength comes from within. It is the continued passion and energy that is still being delivered from our founding team and our employees that is the true reason for our strength and this award.

As we celebrate this award/nomination we must think about those who this ceremony truly celebrates.
