Bothell-based EagleView Technology Corporation, which provides the technology for aerial imagery, data analytics and GIS solutions, recently announced that EY has named EagleView President and CEO Chris Barrow as an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 in the Pacific Northwest Region.  The award recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.  Chris Barrow and other award winners were selected by a panel of independent judges.  The award was presented at a special gala event at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel on June 5th.

“It is such an honor to be chosen for this prestigious award recognizing the success of EagleView in the Big Data category,” said Chris Barrow. “I am truly passionate about this company and strive to be a disruptive innovator in the marketplace, particularly when it comes to data mining and delivering solutions derived from Big Data.” Chris Barrow has shaped EagleView from an aerial measurement company and guided it through a merger with Pictometry International Corp. in 2013 to become the industry leader in aerial imagery, data analytics and GIS solutions serving the commercial, government and public utility sectors.  The company’s massive image library covers 90 percent of the population in the U.S., with hundreds of millions of images dating back over the last decade.

Now in its 29th year, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program has honored the inspirational leadership of such entrepreneurs as Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee Company, Pierre Omidyar of eBay, Inc., and Mindy Grossman of HSN. Recent US national winners include Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn; Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of Chobani; and 2014 winner Dr. David Hung, President and CEO and Chairman of Medivation.

As a Pacific Northwest award winner, Barrow is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 14, 2015. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.
