EY today named Michael Volk, Founder and Managing Partner of GuidePoint
Security, a cybersecurity solutions leader enabling organizations to
make smarter decisions and minimize risk, a finalist for the
Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Mid-Atlantic Award.

Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs,
the program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth
companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial
performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
Winners will be announced at a special gala on June 13, 2019 at the
Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC.

“I’m honored to have been selected as a finalist,” stated Volk. “But it
wouldn’t be possible without the support and incredible work ethic of
GuidePoint’s co-owners/Regional Partners and their teams. Building a
successful business within the security space is difficult because it’s
a crowded market, and products and services are constantly changing to
address ever-evolving threats. However, we’ve remained laser-focused on
providing best-fit, cybersecurity solutions and services to our
customers, which has resulted in high levels of satisfaction and has
validated our approach.”

Under Volk’s leadership, GuidePoint Security has grown its company to 12
Regional Partners and 250 employees serving over 1,700 customers across
43 states and 17 countries with a seven year 83% CAGR, all while
remaining 100% bootstrapped with no long-term debt.
