CEO of San Diego-based leading funding company recognized as an unstoppable entrepreneur transforming the world of finance
San Diego CA— EY announced that CEO of Reliant Funding, Adam Stettner, is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the national financial services category. Now in its 33rd year, this prestigious award recognizes and celebrates unstoppable entrepreneurs who redefine the way we live, work and play.
Stettner was named a finalist by an independent panel of judges, and the recognition was announced at the Strategic Growth Forum® in Palm Springs on November 16. This announcement follows the entrepreneur’s big win in June 2019 when EY recognized Stettner as the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 in the business services category in San Diego.
“EY’s recognition is incredibly meaningful, almost 12 years of hard work recognized nationally by such a prestigious group. Words cannot express the gratitude for this level of recognition and the support from the team that helped me achieve it.” said Stettner. “I look forward to continuing to inspire my peers and family at Reliant Funding as well as continuing to innovate and providing American small businesses with the access to funding they need and the service that assists them in accomplishing their goals.”
When Reliant Funding launched in 2008, the economy was facing its most dangerous financial crisis since the Great Depression. Restricted access to working capital stifled America’s small businesses; traditional banks were more risk adverse and less community focused. The Reliant Funding mission was born from the need to fill that financial gap. Since then, Reliant has funded over $1.5 billion dollars to over 40,000 small businesses nationwide.
EY has celebrated entrepreneurial excellence by honoring those innovators and prominent leaders who have contributed and inspired others with their vision, leadership and achievement since 1986. These leaders are driven by their desire to better the world around them and stop at nothing to achieve their greatest ambitions. In 2019, the 233 award winners represented 191 entrepreneurial companies, employing more than 146,000 people with a job growth of 28 percent. They generated revenue of more than $42 billion, with revenue growth increasing more than 46 percent. For more information, please log onto ey.com.
