EY Names AuditBoard Founders as Entrepreneur of the Year Award Finalists

We couldn’t be happier that our co-founders, Daniel Kim and Jay Lee, have been recognized as business leaders who are reshaping the audit industry.

LOS ANGELES—May 16, 2019EY today announced that Daniel Kim and Jay Lee, co-founders of AuditBoard, are finalists for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in Greater Los Angeles.

AuditBoard, a fully integrated governance, risk, and compliance platform, was founded in 2014 when former PwC and EY auditors Kim and Lee responded to their industry’s lack of innovation with the first cloud-based solution designed to help auditors streamline their SOX, audit, and compliance programs. AuditBoard quickly overtook the market, and today the platform helps companies all over the world—from pre-IPO businesses to corporations at the top of the Fortune list—manage their audit, risk, and compliance needs. 

“It’s exciting to be a finalist in the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, which have recognized incredible entrepreneurs in the past such as the founders of Google, Salesforce, and Intuit. It is truly an honor to be included among the premier game changers in technology today,” said Kim, co-founder and CEO at AuditBoard.

“We’ve known since Day 1 that if AuditBoard succeeded, it would change the lives of millions of auditors for the better. As an EY alumnus, I am thrilled that the EY community has recognized our impact on the audit industry, and we are proud to share this news with our team and our customers, who have helped make this moment possible,” said Lee, co-founder and President at AuditBoard.

Now in its 33rd year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Award winners will be announced at a special black-tie awards gala on Thursday, June 20, 2019, at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
