EY Announces Eric Berry of TripleLift Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 New York Award Finalist

May 28, 2019

NEW YORK, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TripleLift, the world’s largest native advertising platform, today announced its CEO and co-founder, Eric Berry was named as a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 New York Awards. Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., the program 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 also transforming our world.

Berry was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 20, 2019, at the Marriott Marquis.

Founded in 2012, TripleLift is committed to integrating advertising seamlessly into content, creating a positive consumer experience. Over the past year, the company has launched new products to further support that mission including new in-content over-the-top (OTT) ad formats and ContentDial. Between 2012 and 2017, the company had grown at least 3x each year, and in 2018, the company saw a 2x growth as it neared $100 million in revenue, earning it a position on the Crain’s New York 2018 Fast 50 list. As TripleLift continues to grow globally, earlier this year the company opened an office in Sydney, Australia to oversee its growing APAC business.

“Inclusion on this list of finalists is a huge honor for me and TripleLift,” said Berry. “We pride ourselves on being trendspotters and providing forward-thinking solutions to embracing those trends. 2019 will continue to be a year of growth and innovation for TripleLift as we continue to empower advertisers and content creators to offer integrated ads that provide consumers with non-disruptive experiences.”

Now in its 33rd year, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 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. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 16, 2019. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
