Posted June 27th, 2024 by SimpliSafe

BOSTON, MA, June 27, 2024  – SimpliSafe®, maker of award-winning smart home security systems, today announced that its CEO, Christian Cerda, was recently named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 New England Award winner by Ernst & Young LLP (EY US). Entrepreneur Of The Year is the preeminent competitive awards program for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. 

Cerda was selected by an independent judging panel made up of previous award winners, leading CEOs and other business leaders. Candidates were evaluated based on their ability to create long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, commitment to their purpose and the demonstration of growth and substantial impact, among other key indicators.

“I am honored and humbled to be recognized by EY as an Entrepreneur Of The Year 2024 winner in New England," said Cerda. “This award reflects SimpliSafe’s entrepreneurial spirit and speaks volumes about our team, which is committed to providing our customers with unparalleled security technology and services that help them feel and be safer at home.”

Entrepreneur Of The Year recognizes many different types of business leaders for their ingenuity, courage and entrepreneurial spirit. The program celebrates original founders who bootstrapped their business from inception or who raised outside capital to grow their company; transformational CEOs who infused innovation into an existing organization to catapult its trajectory; and multigenerational family business leaders who reimagined a legacy business model to fortify it for the future. 

Cerda joined SimpliSafe in 2019 to scale the company to its next level of growth and innovation. Since then, Cerda has refined SimpliSafe’s strategy, shifting the business from a prominent focus on DIY to offering truly innovative home security products and services, placing an emphasis on professional monitoring and advanced technology designed to stop crime in real time. Thanks to Cerda’s entrepreneurial spirit and leadership, the company is primed to reshape the home security industry and redefine what it means to keep people safe, delivering on its mission to keep every home secure.
