Everbridge CEO Jaime Ellertson Named an EY Entrepreneur Of the Year® 2019 Award Finalist

Under Ellertson’s leadership, Everbridge has pioneered the Critical Event Management industry, providing market-leading solutions to keep people safe and businesses running.

BURLINGTON, Mass. – May 20, 2019 – Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications, today announced that CEO Jaime Ellertson has been named by EY as a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the New England region. Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., EY recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while providing transformative technology solutions.

This recognition reinforces Ellertson’s achievements in establishing Everbridge as a leader in the Critical Event Management market. Everbridge’s services are used each day to save lives and keep businesses up and running. The company’s cloud-based platform enables global customers to more rapidly and completely assess threats and determine their potential impact, as well as to speed response. Everbridge provides the situational awareness and organizational clarity for businesses to take proactive actions to, for example, re-route shipments, divert an employee headed into an area of peril, and enable stores to remain stocked, customers served, and staff working safely when a critical event occurs.

“I’m extremely proud of what Everbridge has accomplished since I joined the company as CEO in 2011,” said Jaime Ellertson, chairman and CEO of Everbridge. “During that time, we have scaled the business from a small, privately-held company to a successful public company with over 4,500 enterprise customers leveraging our Critical Event Management solutions to help keep over 200 million employees and citizens safe and their businesses running. And, our team has grown from fewer than 100 employees to over 800 employees across the globe – all focused on our mission of safety and security.”

Under Ellertson’s leadership, Everbridge has rapidly grown into a technology industry leader with a compound annual growth rate of 36% from 2014 to 2018. Ellertson guided the company through a successful initial public offering in 2016. Since that time, he has led Everbridge’s product transformation from a single product to establishing the Critical Event Management (“CEM”) market and the delivery of the Company’s leading CEM suite to increase shareholder return by sevenfold.

Ellertson was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 26, 2019 at the Westin Boston Waterfront. Now in its 33rd year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and in more than 60 countries throughout the world.
