Tony Lourakis, the founder and CEO of Fleet Complete, has been named a winner in the Technology category of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 Awards Ontario program.
Each year, EY recognizes “unstoppable entrepreneurs” who are bettering the world around them and cutting through the noise of this Transformative Age.
This is his second nomination with EY since 2004, when Fleet Complete and its flagship product were spearheading the telematics market across North America. Today, under Lourakis’s leadership and firm hold of the vision he has for the company, Fleet Complete is growing at an accelerated rate, being constantly ranked on Braham30, Growth 500 and Deloitte Fast 15 as one of the fastest-growing telematics companies worldwide.
“It is a huge honor to be recognized by EY as Entrepreneur of the Year in the world’s most prestigious business awards program,” Lourakis said. “Fleet Complete started as an ambitious dream that attracted an incredible team of innovative, committed and simply talented individuals, who made us the fastest-growing telematics company in the world. And this is what being an entrepreneur is all about – knowing that it takes a dedicated team of people to make your business a success.”
Fleet Complete is a global provider of connected-vehicle technology, servicing more than 500,000 subscribers and more than 35,000 businesses in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Austria, Germany, Greece, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
“I’m blown away by the remarkable stories of entrepreneurs we have in this region,” added Craig Roskos, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Ontario program co-director. “We have a significant number of new and emerging entrepreneurs this year, with nearly half of the businesses less than 10 years old. But what stands out the most is how all of our finalists are responding to change by continuously challenging the status quo and innovating to uncover news ways of thinking.”
