Scottsdale, AZ – EY announced that Rob Donat, Founder & CEO of GPS Insight, is a finalist for theEY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2015 Award in the Mountain Desert region.

Mr. Donat was selected for the second consecutive year as a finalist by a panel of independent judges.

Despite its significant growth over the last 10 years, with Mr. Donat’s vision and leadership, GPS Insight remains focused on innovation in the name of client success.
