Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2018 Award Finalist in Central Texas region
First-time nominees will represent the fastest-growing freight broker in the United States on June 8th in Austin, Texas.
Austin,TX — May 3, 2018 – EY today announced that CEO, Matt Pyatt, and President, Eric Dunigan, of Arrive Logistics are finalists for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2018 Award in the Central Texas region. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Matt Pyatt and Eric Dunigan were selected as finalists by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 8th, 2018 at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas.
“Eric and I are excited and flattered to be named finalists for this year’s EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award,” said Matt Pyatt, CEO of Arrive Logistics. “It is a unique privilege for us to lead an organization made up of such outstanding, hard working people who are all dedicated to redefining the modern broker experience. To be recognized by EY alongside my business partner and close friend Eric for this prestigious honor is very humbling.”
Since 2014, Arrive has worked tirelessly to redefine what it means to be a freight broker; giving partners more by putting proprietary technology, unprecedented operations, and customer service at the forefront of everything they do. What was once a 10-person team based in Austin, Texas is now a team of more than 400 people spanning two major U.S. cities (Chicago and Austin). The business has skyrocketed from an already-impressive $30M in first-year truckload sales, to $145M in 2017, to an on-track projection of more than $330M by the end of 2018. Because of these business milestones, Arrive Logistics is proud to claim the title of fastest-growing freight broker in the United States.
Now in its 32nd year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 17, 2018. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
Founded and produced by EY, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are nationally sponsored in the US by SAP America, the Kauffman Foundation and Merrill Corporation.
In Central Texas, sponsors also include Broadway Bank, Colliers International, ADP, Aventine Hill Partners, Bridgepoint Consulting, Watkins Insurance Group, Shearman & Sterling, the Austin Business Journal and San Antonio Business Journal.
