Heidi Golledge, CEO and Founder of CyberCoders, Named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2013
Ernst & Young has announced that Heidi Golledge has been named regional winner of the 2013 Entrepreneur Of The Year® in the category of business services for the Orange County, Inland Empire and Las Vegas region. The award honors high-growth entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
As the founder of CyberCoders, Golledge has increased revenue by three times in the last three years and has expanded locations to Los Angeles, Boston and New York. In addition, Golledge and CyberCoders are responsible for creating a disruptive recruiting software platform that increases recruiter productivity by fifty percent, and improves the quality of the recruiter’s work environment, while growing company profitability.
Standing at the podium clad in sequined Converse, Golledge said, "Many young girls dream of becoming an actress or ballerina. Since I realized that there are not many ballerinas wearing Converse sneakers, I dreamed of becoming an entrepreneur in technology.”
After her acceptance she added, "The Ernst and Young award is truly a team award; the 250 men and women at CyberCoders and CareerBliss have spent over a decade building a culture which treats everyone like family and a business which places thousands of people in great new jobs each year."
Golledge leads more than 250 employees to help find and place talent in fields such as technology finance, marketing, healthcare, sales and engineering. Golledge is a national leader in work-place happiness, and launched the site CareerBliss.com to offer people a new and unique way to review companies, inquire about salary listings, and determine the type of work culture that is best for them.
