COVINGTON, Ky. – The cofounders of Gravity Diagnostics, Tony Remington, CEO, and Julie Brazil, have been named finalists in Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year awards.
Now in its 35th year, EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year program honors business leaders whose ambition, ingenuity and courage in the face of adversity help catapult the world from the now to next and beyond.
Remington and Brazil were selected by a panel of independent judges. Their status as finalists was announced in June. Award winners will be announced during a special virtual celebration on August 5, and will become lifetime members of a community of Entrepreneur of The Year alumni from around the world.
Gravity Diagnostics is a state-of-the-art lab in downtown Covington that provides testing services for COVID-19, upper respiratory, toxicology, pharmacogenomics and sexually transmitted infections for more than 1,000 customers from small private practices to universities and Fortune 500 companies. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the lab has processed more than 2.4 million COVID-19 tests.
Entrepreneur of the Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria: entrepreneurial leadership; talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation, and future plans. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
“Tony and I are honored to be recognized as a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year award. Over the past year, Gravity Diagnostics has experienced a tremendous amount of growth and this recognition reminds us of how important the business decisions we made over the past years were in fulfilling our mission,” Brazil said. “We are more bullish than ever on continuing to provide innovative health care solutions that empower individuals to take charge of their own health care destiny.”
