EY Names CyberPoint CEO Karl Gumtow Maryland Entrepreneur of the Year in Technology Category

BALTIMORE, MD (June 29, 2015) — EY has named CyberPoint's CEO, Karl Gumtow, Maryland Entrepreneur of the Year in the Technology category. This is great recognition for him and everyone at CyberPoint. "I'm honored," he said, "but it's really a win for all of us, not just me."

As a Maryland award winner, Karl Gumtow is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 14, 2015.

"EY has honored outstanding entrepreneurs for the past 29 years," said Harry Thomasian and Denise Dodson, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Program Directors for Maryland. "These winners are accomplished leaders who have contributed a tremendous amount to their communities."

Over the last three decades EY (formerly known as Ernst and Young) has honored the inspirational leadership of entrepreneurs like Starbuck's Howard Schultz, eBay's Pierre Omidyar, and HSN's Mindy Grossman. As a regional winner, Karl is now in the running for national honors, to be announced in November. He's in good company: recent US national winners include Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn; Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of Chobani; and, in 2014, Dr. David Hung, President and CEO and Chairman of Medivation.

Founded and produced by EY, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are sponsored nationally by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and SAP America. In Maryland the regional program sponsors also include the Baltimore Business Journal, DLA Piper, PNC Bank and Smart CEO. Maryland reception sponsors include DTZ, Kelly Benefit Strategies and Randstad.

Congratulations to Karl Gumtow, and thanks to all who contributed to building CyberPoint into the respected company it is today.
