ConnectYourCare Founder and President among Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 finalists

Jamie Spriggs, of ConnectYourCare is honored to be selected as a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Maryland 2012 award.

HUNT VALLEY, Md., July 9, 2012 – ConnectYourCare’s founder and president, Jamie Spriggs, was honored recently by Ernst & Young for entrepreneurial excellence. Spriggs was among the finalists named for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year® (EOY) award at their annual gala. Held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, the EOY gala recognized entrepreneurship in the Maryland region.

Ernst & Young originated the Entrepreneur of the Year program in 1986 to honor entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, hard work and perseverance have created and sustained successful, growing business ventures. An independent panel of judges consisting of past EOY award winners, and civic and community leaders review and deliberate the merits of each nominee in order to select the top finalists and ultimately industry winners.

As the founder of ConnectYourCare, Spriggs set out to radically change the face of Consumer-Directed Healthcare (CDH) by providing a platform that empowers businesses and employees to benefit from tax-advantaged health accounts and consumer choice. He founded ConnectYourCare to focus exclusively on CDH and be the first company to combine health savings accounts and healthcare decision support tools into a coherent easy to understand and easy to implement platform.

“The healthcare market in the U.S. is broken, and ConnectYourCare’s mission is to help the healthcare system move to a better aligned, account-based system,” said Spriggs. “I feel it’s a tribute to our business model and team that I was nominated for such a prestigious award.”

Ernst & Young values innovation and honor those who not only built a world–class company, but continue to grow as an industry leader.
