We’re delighted to share that our CEO, Martin Manniche, has won EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Platform Innovation in Orange County. This is the second consecutive year Martin was nominated.
Martin’s entrepreneurial spirit was sparked as a teenager in his native Denmark: Too young to front his own business, he enlisted his older brother in a successful scheme to buy broken down exotic cars, restore them himself, then sell them at their true value. He went on to found and successfully grow nine progressively daring companies, leveraging increasingly complex technologies and amassing more than 100 innovation awards in the process.
His ability to visualize future technology, create a shared mission and tenaciously push to bring a concept to life sets Martin apart from other industry leaders. His talent, commitment and passion for innovation, combined with his ability to select strategic partners, have earned him dozens of accolades, but more importantly, grown an award-winning and thriving business from concept to industry flagship.
Martin’s regional Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Platform Innovation means he advances as a finalist for the national award, which will be given out in November in Palm Springs, CA.
