AuditBoard Founders Honored in EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards

AuditBoard is proud of its founders, Daniel Kim and Jay Lee, for being recognized as entrepreneurs leading innovation in the audit industry.

LOS ANGELES — April 9, 2019 — EY today announced that Daniel Kim, co-founder and CEO, and Jay Lee, co-founder and President, of AuditBoard are semifinalists for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in Greater Los Angeles. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Kim and Lee were selected as semifinalists by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special black tie award gala on Thursday, June 20, 2019, at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

In 2014, Kim and Lee—childhood friends and former PwC and EY auditors, respectively—launched AuditBoard, a cloud-based, fully integrated governance, risk, and compliance platform. Today, AuditBoard helps organizations around the world streamline their SOX, operational audit, and compliance programs. The company’s client roster spans pre-IPO companies to the world’s top Fortune 10 enterprises.

“It is an amazing honor to be named a semifinalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards,” said Kim. “It’s exciting to build a company that is helping to redefine how an entire industry will work. The fact that I began my career as a PwC auditor and spent over a decade in this industry before starting AuditBoard makes this recognition that much more special.”

“The entire AuditBoard team is dedicated to empowering auditors to get back to what we really love doing: driving value for the business and enabling better decisions to be made,” said Lee. “As a former EY alum who got my start in audit, it’s great to see EY’s continued commitment to innovation and humbling to receive their support,” said Lee.

Now in its 33rd year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and over 60 countries throughout the world.
