MarketOne CEO Fred Ewald an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 New England Award Finalist

Date: 18 September 2020

Fred Ewald CEO, MarketOneErnst & Young LLP (EY US) has announced that Fred Ewald, CEO of MarketOne International was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 New England Award finalist. Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world. Fred was selected as one of the finalists by a panel of independent judges.

Award winners will be announced through special virtual events on October 6, 2020 and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience, and ingenuity.

Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria: overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.

When asked what makes him “unstoppable”, Fred Ewald explained, “I wouldn’t point to myself as the single driving force behind MarketOne’s success. My focus is on hiring and inspiring the best employees, who are curious, ambitious, and creative, and then stepping out of their way. Our corporate values crystallize why we’re unstoppable: Ingenuity, Integrity, Respect, and Tenacity. Nothing is impossible when you find a team that embodies those values.”

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards to be announced in November during a virtual awards gala. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2021.

Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners become lifetime members of a global, multi-industry community of entrepreneurs, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of program alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.


Founded and produced by Ernst & Young LLP, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are nationally sponsored by SAP America and the Kauffman Foundation. In New England, sponsors also include Fama PR, the Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst, Nixon Peabody, TRUE Search, Woodruff Sawyer, Chatham Financial, Morgan Lewis, and Sullivan and Worcester.
