Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, this award acknowledges exceptional achievements and entrepreneurial ingenuity among business leaders. “These honorees not only create and build market-leading businesses, but also help take the standard of excellence to new heights, transform the face of the industry, create jobs and contribute to the vibrancy of communities,” states the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year website.
“Dale truly embodies the characteristics of a great leader — spearheading our company’s tremendous growth and accomplishments. He approaches our triumphs by giving credit to our entire team, so it is especially exciting to be able to celebrate his contributions as a leader,” Michael Catanzarita, Chief Financial Officer for EZShield.
Central to EZShield’s standing as an award-winning identity protection provider is their go-to-market strategy of delivering services through partners. EZShield helps partners achieve their goals through compliant identity theft protection programs, which provide much-needed peace of mind to their consumer and small business customers throughout the country.
EZShield is dedicated to empowering consumers and small businesses to proactively protect themselves against identity crimes, which impacted 38.3 million people in the U.S. last year. Key to this empowerment initiative, the company works with local businesses, the BBB of Greater Maryland and their surrounding community to provide educational outreach on the topics of fraud and identity theft.
“I am proud to be an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year finalist and honored by the work and amazing people who are such an integral part of this success. Our extraordinary team of dedicated professionals have grown EZShield from a single product, 15 years ago, to over 20 offerings that help protect people against a multitude of identity crimes,” said Dabbs.
A gala celebrating regional finalists will be held June 9 in Baltimore, MD where judges will announce regional award winners. On November 19, regional winners will be eligible for national program awards, including the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award.
