CEO and co-Founder Jeff Tangney recognized as entrepreneur ‘breaking the mold’ to improve healthcare in US
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., November 15, 2018 -– EY today announced that Jeff Tangney, the co-founder and CEO of Doximity, received the Entrepreneur of The Year® 2018 National Award in the Services category. Now in its 32nd year, this prestigious award recognizes dynamic entrepreneurs who are forging a better future through products, services and jobs that keep our worldwide economy and communities moving forward.
Tangney was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at EY’s Strategic Growth Forum in Palm Springs on November 11. This is the third time Tangney has been recognized by EY as he received the award earlier this year in the Health category in Northern California, as well as in 2007 for his work at Epocrates.
“We’ve been humble enough to recognize that healthcare is a complex system, and that if you want to affect positive change, then you have to work from inside that system. We attribute much of our growth to this attitude: we focus on the needs of physicians first and foremost,” said Tangney.
Past recipients of the Entrepreneur of the Year award include Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google Inc., Howard Schultz of Starbucks Corporation, and Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn. Jeff Tangney was originally selected as a regional Entrepreneur of The Year winner in the Health category from Northern California. He was selected for this national award from more than 1,300 applicants nationwide.
