Zach Hoffman, Founder and CEO of Exults Internet Marketing, was awarded the prestigious College of Business Rising Star Award from the University of Central Florida (UCF) Alumni Association. The College of Business Rising Star Award is presented annually to an alumnus/alumna who has displayed promise, excellence and distinction early on in their respective field, is active in their community and is considered a rising star in their profession. Hoffman accepted his award during a presentation ceremony, along with Mark Plaumann who received the Professional Achievement Award at the University’s Annual Black and Gold Gala, which was held at the UCF arena on November 1, 2012.
Hoffman, one of South Florida’s fastest rising young entrepreneurs, launched Exults in 2005 (then known as SEO.cc) and has grown the company to become one of the leading internet marketing companies in the South Florida market. He continues to keep up with market demand by perfecting and expanding innovative products and services.

“Zach Hoffman is a dynamic young entrepreneur with a knack for evolving his business toward emerging growth opportunities. His success should inspire other students from UCF to consider entrepreneurship as a potential path towards career success and personal fulfillment,” said Cameron Ford, Ph.D., Director - Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, University of Central Florida.
Jim Gilkeson, Ph.D., CFA, Associate Professor, Department of Finance, University of Central Florida, added, "Zach reminds me of the old adage, 'success is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.' He had a great idea, but it's much more important that he thinks about his company and works to make his company better every waking hour of every day. Moreover, he's incredibly passionate about what he's doing and driven to succeed.”
Hoffman has always embodied the true entrepreneurial spirit and knack for internet marketing dating back to his college days at UCF when he began a business of creating affiliate marketing websites and managed his father’s dental practice internet marketing. He quickly transformed this start-up platform into a business focusing on marketing dental websites for a myriad of clients. After graduation, he quickly expanded his products and service offerings and built Exults into the successful business that it is today. Hoffman has been an active member of the UCF College of Business Administration Chapter of the UCF Alumni Association since he graduated from the University in 2005.
