EY Announces Brian Meshkin, CEO at Proove Biosciences, as EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 Orange County Semifinalist for the 2nd Year in a Row
Proove Biosciences, Inc., the commercial and research leader in personalized pain medicine, is pleased to announce that Brian Meshkin, CEO at Proove Biosciences, is named as a semifinalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 Orange County Region. Now celebrating its 30th year, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs in over 145 cities and 60 countries who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Brian Meshkin was selected as a semifinalist by a panel of independent judges. Finalists will be announced Monday, May 23—and winners will be announced at a formal Awards Gala on Friday, June 17. The Awards Gala, which is held at St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California, is expected to host more than 500 Founders, CEOs, and other business leaders.
“It is such a humbling honor to be selected as a semifinalist again for this prestigious award,” said Meshkin. “To be in the running for an award from an organization like EY—in a dynamic and thriving community like Orange County—reflects the commitment of the everyone at Proove to our mission of improving healthcare decisions to enhance patient care for our nation’s largest and most expensive health condition which is pain.” Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the overall national award winner, will be announced at the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 19, 2016. The awards gala is the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
The recognition from EY comes on the heels of Meshkin’s receipt of the 15th Annual Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award from the Orange County Business Journal last month.
