ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Adam Bruckman, president and CEO of OneDigital Health and Benefits, the nation’s largest employee benefits-only company, has been named a finalist for the Ernst & Young (EY) Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Southeast. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. The award winners were announced last night at the Entrepreneur Of The Year Gala at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.
Bruckman has led the company from a start-up firm into the largest national agency exclusively focused on employee benefits. Under his leadership, the organization has consistently reached aggressive financial goals year-over-year and has been named annually to the Inc. 5000 List of America’s fastest-growing companies since the honor’s inception in 2007.
“It’s a great honor to be selected for this award among such a distinguished group,” says Bruckman. “This achievement is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of the entire OneDigital family. Innovation and fresh thinking are at the heart of our culture, and it’s this that makes us a leader in an industry undergoing tremendous changes and challenges.”
Innovation and personal commitment have been the hallmark of Bruckman’s leadership since the company launched in 2000. While OneDigital makes significant investments in new technologies and advisory services, it’s Bruckman’s engagement with his people that make him a unique entrepreneur. His motivational emails to the company, personalized letters to new employees and participation in company events allow everyone at OneDigital to feel a connection with him.
“The people of OneDigital provide incredible feedback about Adam’s leadership and devotion he has to each employee,” adds Mike Sullivan, chief growth officer. “I don’t know of another company that can share the same passion and enthusiasm for their CEO. We all celebrate this achievement with him and couldn’t be happier to have him as our leader.”
Now in its 31st year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year® program has expanded to recognize business leaders in over 145 cities and more than 60 countries. Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition. Award winners in several national categories will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, Calif., on Nov. 18, 2017. The awards are the culmination of the Strategic Growth Forum™, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
