Washington, DC — EY today announced that Kevin MacDonald, CEO and Co-founder of Kit Check is a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 Award in the Greater Washington Region. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Mr. MacDonald was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced on Thursday, June 18, 2015 at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner.
“Kevin has exhibited a wide range of business acumen, innovative thinking and relentless focus as we have built Kit Check from a spare bedroom to over 175 hospital customers in just three years. His technical background combined with business management and sales experience were essential assets as we scaled the company. Kit Check’s rapid growth clearly qualifies him as an Entrepreneur of the Year finalist. However, what really stands out is the change the company has delivered by introducing safer and more efficient medication handling and tracking despite heavy healthcare industry regulation. It took a strong willed and versatile entrepreneur to break through,” said Kevin’s Kit Check co-founder and Chief Product Officer, Tim Kress-Spatz.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 14, 2015. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
Founded and produced by EY, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are nationally sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and SAP America. In Greater Washington, regional program sponsors also include the Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, PNC Bank and the Washington Business Journal. Greater Washington reception sponsors include DTZ, Lockton and SolomonEdwards.
