Denver, CO – June 29, 2018 – Velocity Global, the leading provider of global employment services, announced today that its CEO, Ben Wright, received the Entrepreneur of the Year® 2018 Award in the emerging category of the Mountain Desert region. This award recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
Wright was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Last year, Wright was a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Mountain Desert region.
“To be recognized as a finalist in 2017 was already a very special moment. To win this year in a category full of great leaders is extremely humbling,” said Wright. “I dedicate this award to my team at Velocity Global. They have always supported my entrepreneurial spirit, and continue to play a huge role in the success of our company.”
Wright, a first-time entrepreneur, started Velocity Global four years ago and has achieved impressive year-over-year growth in revenue, income, and employee count. The company is the first in the industry to provide end-to-end services that help companies expand globally—using one partner and was named the fastest-growing private company in Colorado in 2017.
Since 1986, EY has honored entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, spirit of innovation, and discipline have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries, and made a positive impact on their communities.
As a Mountain Desert award winner, Wright is now eligible to be considered for the Entrepreneur of The Year 2018 National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, including 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 10, 2018.
