Aspect Software CEO James Foy Named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in New England
Aspect Software CEO James Foy has received the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2006 award in the software category in New England. According to Ernst & Young, the award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who are building and leading dynamic, growing businesses. An independent panel of judges selected Foy for the award, which he accepted at an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 20th Anniversary gala event at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel on June 15.
Within a four-year period beginning in 2001, Foy led the integration of six contact center technology providers, ultimately creating Aspect Software, a contact center solutions provider in automatic call distribution, workforce management, predictive dialing, voice portals and multi-channel contact.
The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards program celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and continues to honor entrepreneurs who have demonstrated excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. "Ernst & Young is proud of its history in recognizing these outstanding leaders and their companies," said Bryan Pearce, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year program director for New England.
As a New England award winner, Foy is now eligible for consideration for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2006 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the overall national Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, Calif., on Nov. 18. The overall national Entrepreneur of the Year award recipient is then considered for the world event held in Monte Carlo.
