MobileHelp CEO Rob Flippo has been named a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 Award in Florida.
The Boca Raton-based company is a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS) and healthcare technology.
The winner will be announced during an event on June 7 at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort in Orlando, Florida.
The Entrepreneur of the Year awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Flippo was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges.
“When I co-founded MobileHelp more than 11 years ago, it was to address the need for a mobile solution in the emergency response space,” Flippo said. “Our continued growth in the life safety market reinforced the strength of the solution we were providing, and has fostered our commitment to consistently innovate and redefine the space for the customers we serve. It is truly an honor to be nominated for this award.”
“Fostered under Rob’s leadership, our company mission is to be someone’s hero. Every day. Rob’s dedication to that mission statement can be felt throughout our organization on a daily basis, and we’re incredibly proud to have his accomplishments recognized by Ernst & Young,” said Dennis Boyle, President and COO of MobileHelp.
Now in its 32nd year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world. Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition.
Founded and produced by EY, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are nationally sponsored in the US by SAP America, the Kauffman Foundation and Merrill Corporation. In Florida, regional platinum sponsors also include Greenberg Taurig and PNC Bank.
