IRVINE, May 15, 2019 – EY today announced that Tim Britt, CEO of Synoptek is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the Orange County Region. Entrepreneurship is an unstoppable force transforming our lives, entire industries and economies, and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of it! Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., the Entrepreneur Of The Year 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.
Tim Britt was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges, achieving this now the 3rd year in a row since 2017. The program makes a difference by encouraging entrepreneurial activity among those with potential and recognizes the contribution of people who inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievement.
Tim Britt, CEO of Synoptek, shares, “When Synoptek first launched in the early 2000s, it began as a consulting business for large organizations providing IT strategy and leadership. I saw an opportunity for us to become more – nobody was delivering value in an area where there seemed to be a clear need. I believed – and still do – that because the market changes so fast, it was challenging for competitors to deliver high service levels. I knew we could distinguish ourselves through customer service excellence and innovation.”
Now in its 33rd year, the program recognizes business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world. Past leaders have disrupted industries, created new product categories and successfully brought new innovation and technology to traditional industries.
“This is a tribute to the Synoptek team. We have a terrific team that are helping customers transform and evolve they way they do business in the new digital world. Customers want more which drives our growth,” Tim Britt adds.
We’re honored to have Tim Britt recognized among so many other notable business luminaries in Orange County. Be sure to follow along our journey to become an award winner!
