SOUTH JORDAN, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Executech, Utah’s premier outsourced IT company, announced its president and CEO, Eric Montague, was named as a finalist for the 2017 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of the Year® Award in the Utah region. Montague was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 10, 2017, at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
The award recognizes entrepreneurs who are making a major impact by building and leading successful businesses in their community.
“I’m extremely honored to be recognized by Ernst & Young as one of Utah’s top entrepreneurs,” said Montague. “Entrepreneurship and growing a business aren’t based on an individual effort, but team members who buy into a vision and dedicate themselves to excellence. I’m grateful for a team that works together to build an award-winning service for our customers.”
Montague began his entrepreneurial journey in 1999 with the founding of Executech with one client and a truck without heat, and on the principle of hard work in order to bring the human touch to technology. Since that time, Executech has become one of the fastest-growing outsourced IT companies in the state and nation, having experienced explosive growth of more than 30 percent year-over-year growth since 2009. Arguably one of the most decorated outsourced IT companies in the state, Executech is consistently recognized as a top workplace by local and national organizations as well as a “Best of State” for its contributions and dedication to community.
Through Montague’s dedication to IT excellence, Executech plays a vital role in Utah’s business community by providing support to more than 2,000 company networks across the state. Its world-class IT support helps companies large and small keep their businesses running smoothly.
"Eric is a principle-based entrepreneur. His lifetime love of scouting, the outdoors, and values has propelled him to great achievements. His success extends well beyond his business accomplishments,” said Perry Frandsen, a business colleague.
Montague’s entrepreneurial endeavors have extended beyond Executech. In 2013, he invested in and helped grow Beddy’s, a zipper bedding company, where he learned the ins and outs of manufacturing, product design and supply chain. Under his tutelage the company saw 1,269 percent growth in three years.
