Earlier this week, Ernst and Young announced Kurt and Kyle Sobotka, co-founders of Prime Technical Services, as finalists for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the Southeast. 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. The Sobotkas were selected as finalists by a panel of independent judges, and award winners will be announced at a special gala event on Thursday, June 27, 2019 at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Kyle and I are asked what has contributed most to our growth, and I’ve noticed that my answer sounds a lot like this: ‘blah, blah blah, words, words, words,’” co-founder Kurt Sobotka said. “As we prepare for our upcoming EY interview in Charlotte, the best we can come up with is… we’re just lucky to have the friends we have. Somehow we were able to build a team of experts capable of deploying the advantages built into our company and executing at the highest level. They set the highest standards for themselves in our industry, dress business professional every day, and ‘leave their pets and bean-bag chairs at home.’ Our team is small, but our results are exceptional because they are PROS. I feel like I’m leading a team of special forces operators dialed into the mission we’ve set for this company, and it’s the best thing I’ve done in my life.”
Now in its 33rd year, the EY 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. 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.
“Our company’s 5-year anniversary is on August 1st, and if you asked Kyle and I as we worked on our couch 5 years ago if this is what we had in mind - we would say, ‘ABSOLUTELY!’ I couldn’t be prouder to be part of Prime and can’t wait to see what the next 5 years have in store for us.”
