BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management, today announced that long-time CEO and Chairman Jaime Ellertson received the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the New England region.
Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., EY recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while providing transformative technology solutions. The winners were selected by an independent panel of judges and announced during an awards gala last night at the Westin Waterfront in Boston.
During his tenure as CEO of Everbridge, Ellertson guided the Critical Event Management leader through a sustained period of high growth from a small, privately-held company to a successful public company with more than 4,500 customers and 800 employees around the globe. Last week, Everbridge announced that Ellertson is transitioning to the role of Executive Chairman of the Everbridge Board, one year after announcing and now completing a successful CEO succession.
“I’ve been honored to serve as Everbridge’s CEO for more than eight years. This recognition is really about the award-winning Everbridge team that works tirelessly to keep people safe and businesses running,” said Ellertson. “Every successful entrepreneur stands with an even more successful team, and awards like this are really recognition of the work and commitment of our employees around the globe.”
