We’re proud to have several world-class companies right here in Idaho — and to have world-class CEO's leading those companies onward." -- Idaho Governor Butch Otter

EY recently announced that Matt Rissell, CEO and co-founder of TSheets, is a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 Award.

The awards program, which is celebrating its 31st year, recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. The program has expanded to recognize business leaders in over 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.

"To be considered among the most elite group of entrepreneurs recognized by Ernst and Young is an honor of a lifetime," Rissell commented. “I believe that regions outside Silicon Valley, like Utah and Idaho, are transforming the business landscape for the better — especially in the tech industry. The Pacific Northwest is rapidly becoming a veritable business hub, and I'm excited to be part of that movement."

"We’re proud to have several world-class companies right here in Idaho — and to have world-class CEO's leading those companies onward." said Idaho Governor Butch Otter. "TSheets is an admirable representation of a company that is harnessing Idaho's talent, resources, and entrepreneurial spirit to create meaningful career paths. This is exactly the kind of innovation that should be credited for helping to create economic opportunity in our great state."

Rissell was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 10, 2017 at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.

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 18, 2017. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth ForumTM, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
