The Cecelia Health team goes the extra mile every day to deliver telehealth across the U.S. to those living with diabetes and related chronic conditions, improve patient health and drive ROI for our customers.

Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) has announced that David Weingard, CEO and Founder of Cecelia Health, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 New York Award finalist. Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world. David was selected as one of the finalists by a panel of independent judges comprising former winners and business leaders from multiple industries.

Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event in early October and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience and ingenuity.

“Accelerating Cecelia Health’s business growth and positive social impact is incredibly rewarding. The Cecelia Health team goes the extra mile every day to deliver telehealth across the U.S. to those living with diabetes and related chronic conditions, improve patient health and drive ROI for our customers,” said David G. Weingard, Founder and CEO of Cecelia Health. “With one in every three Americans expected to have diabetes by the year 2030, we are in a national crisis that needs scalable telehealth solutions, such as Cecelia Health, to solve for the growing problem. I am therefore extremely honored to be named as a finalist for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur Of The Year and be part of this incredible community with whom we can partner to solve for big problems and create positive impact around the world.”

Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria, including overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.

“The novel coronavirus pandemic has exponentially grown demand and market opportunity for telehealth,” said Dr. Arnold Saperstein, Chief Medical Officer at Cecelia Health. “David’s strong leadership, innovative nature, and compassionate desire to bring virtual care solutions and tech-enabled coaching to impacted populations has helped our business overcome obstacles and achieve the scale needed to make a true and lasting impact.”

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, to be announced in November during a virtual awards gala. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2021.

Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners become lifetime members of a global, multi-industry community of entrepreneurs, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of program alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.

Founded and produced by Ernst & Young LLP, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are nationally sponsored by SAP America and the Kauffman Foundation.

In the New York region, sponsors also include Donnelley Financial Services, Marsh, Empire Valuation, DLA Piper and Morgan Lewis.
