EY Announces Devin Daly of Impel as an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 New York Award Finalist

Syracuse, NY, May 2, 2024 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that CEO and Co-Founder Devin Daly of Impel was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 New York Award finalist. The New York program celebrates entrepreneurs from New York and Connecticut. Now in its 38th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is the preeminent competitive business award for audacious leaders who disrupt markets, revolutionize sectors, and have a transformational impact on lives. Over the past four decades, the program has recognized the daring entrepreneurs with big ideas and bold actions that reshape our world.

Daly was one of 43 regional entrepreneurs selected as finalists by an independent panel of judges. The candidates were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

“Our mission at Impel is to drive the auto industry forward by enabling dealers, manufacturers and third-party marketplaces to harness the power of AI to transform the retail experience,” said Daly. “While this award is a recognition of our performance, it’s really a testament to the incredible grit, passion, inventiveness, and results of the amazing team of employees we have at Impel, who work tirelessly to make our collective vision a reality. I couldn’t be prouder of our people, and I’m honored and humbled to be selected as a finalist alongside such an innovative group of business leaders from across the region.”

Entrepreneur Of The Year honors many different types of business leaders for their ingenuity, courage and entrepreneurial spirit. The program celebrates original founders who bootstrapped their business from inception or who raised outside capital to grow their company; transformational CEOs who infused innovation into an existing organization to catapult its trajectory; and multigenerational family business leaders who reimagined a legacy business model to fortify it for the future.

Regional award winners will be announced on June 18th during a special celebration and will become lifetime members of an esteemed community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. The winners will then be considered by the National judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.

In addition to Entrepreneur Of The Year, EY US supports other entrepreneurs through the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ program and the EY Entrepreneurs Access Network to help connect women founders and Black and Hispanic/Latino entrepreneurs, respectively, with the resources, network and access needed to unlock their full potential.
