BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IdentityForce, Inc., a pioneer of identity protection solutions and services, today announced that its CEO, Steven Bearak, has been named one of only 24 Gold Winners recognized globally in the prestigious CEO World Awards® program. Bearak was selected as “The Team Builder” in the CEO of the Year category, recognized for his excellence in strategic team building combined with his vision that has led IdentityForce’s product innovation and market expansion.
The CEO World Awards were created to honor and generate industry-wide recognition for the achievements and positive contributions of CEOs spanning every business arena across the globe. More than 40 judges comprised of a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world reviewed over 200 CEO nominations. Their average scores determined the 2017 CEO World Award winners.
Bearak, IdentityForce’s first and only CEO, has extensive expertise in identity theft protection and led IdentityForce’s most successful year in its nearly 40-year history. Under his leadership in 2016, IdentityForce witnessed a 43 percent YoY growth in sales driven by both consumer membership renewals and the addition of major partnerships within High-tech, Financial Services, Telecommunications, and Government.
Ultimately, IdentityForce’s corporate culture is critical to Bearak — and he wholeheartedly believes that culture isn’t about free lunches and gym memberships — it’s about the people – and that’s where the biggest impact can be made. Bearak was recently interviewed by Built in Boston, and he explained, “IdentityForce’s corporate manifesto is built on our shared values. We’re here to make a difference in the lives of our members, the people who rely on us every day to protect their personal identity. We want our employees to have a strong sense of purpose and to support each other unequivocally to exceed expectations.”
“This award belongs to our entire team for the steadfast commitment we’ve all had in delivering our best, every day, to our members, customers, and partners,” said Steven Bearak, CEO of IdentityForce. “Having such an esteemed form of recognition is truly humbling and I couldn’t be prouder of IdentityForce, both for its award-winning product and, now, as an award-winning team.”
