Chantilly, Va., May 4, 2015 – EY today announced that Shervin Gerami, CEO of TeleWorld Solutions, is a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2015 Award in the Greater Washington Region. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Gerami was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on Thursday, June 18, 2015, at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner.
Gerami took the reins of TeleWorld Solutions in 2009 and has since built it into a unique and successful service provider for the telecommunications industry. The company has gone from no revenue in 2008 to $31 million in revenue today thanks to Gerami’s disruptive approach of offering productized “solutions” that are tailored to the needs of each client, saving them time and money. This has led to greater efficiencies for TeleWorld Solutions’ clients.
“Being recognized in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year competition is strong validation of the road we have taken to fuel our growth and success over the last few years,” said Gerami. “TeleWorld Solutions’ accelerated growth is a testament to our dedicated employees, and showcases our commitment to solving difficult wireless problems and creating efficient and optimized networks.”
Now in its 29th year, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 14, 2015. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
