IRVINE, CA, USA, August 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Anderee Berengian, Founder and CEO of Cie, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Pacific Southwest – Orange County Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The award recognizes those who are unstoppable entrepreneurial leaders, excelling in talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation and future plans. Berengian was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was announced during the program’s virtual awards gala on August 5.

“It’s an honor to be named a winner for Entrepreneur Of The Year,” said Berengian. “The businesses we’ve launched at Cie are transforming our world and the many companies we’re currently building have the potential for an even greater impact.”

Berengian’s vision for Cie was to match disruptive entrepreneurial ideas with seasoned business leadership and venture capital investment to accelerate results and success. With numerous exits, Berengian and his team at Cie have proven their acumen at identifying and scaling startups.

“Bringing together the right strategy, talent, ideas and investment has allowed Cie to quickly build impactful business models,” noted Berengian. “Our team consists of world-class thinkers and execution-oriented leaders without whom we could not achieve our goals. I look forward to leading us into the future.”

For 35 years, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Berengian will go on to become a lifetime member of the esteemed multi-industry community of award winners, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of fellow alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.
