If you thought the Forbes 30 under 30 award was impressive, wait until you find out Austin McChord, CEO of Datto’s, newest award.

Austin was the winner of EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year 2016 New York Award in Technology.

The judging panel, made up of previous winners, leading CEOs, and private capital investors along with other regional business leaders, looked at entrepreneurs who have made a significant mark on innovation and the economy.

“EY has had a tremendous history in honoring outstanding entrepreneurs over the past 30 years,” said Carmine Romano, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Program Director for New York. “This year’s winners have not only taken their companies to the top, but they have also acted as mentors to their employees and made impressive contributions to their communities.”

Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates those who are building and leading successful, growing and dynamic business, recognizing them through regional, national and global awards programs in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries, according to EY.

Datto was created around Austin’s idea that he could make BCDR products cheaper than anyone else, and Datto is now a billion-dollar business in the data backup and disaster recovery industry. Check out the full list of winners here.
