Tysons, VA, April 30, 2019 – EY today announced that Founder, President, and CEO Kris Coleman of Red Five Security is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Mid-Atlantic Award. Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., the program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world. Kris Coleman was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 13, 2019 at the Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC.
“Being recognized as an EY award finalist is a true testament to the talent, commitment and passion of the entire Red Five team,” Coleman said. “The work that we do is critically important to our client’s well-being, including the protection of their companies, families and lasting legacy. It’s that kind of responsibility that drives us to leverage our decades of formal training, while always working to innovate our practices to ensure our clients are safe, secure and ready to react to any experience.”
