 EY Announces Alex Sun, President and CEO of Mitchell International, as an EY  Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 San Diego Semifinalist

San Diego, CA – April 15, 2016 – EY has announced that Alex Sun, President and CEO of Mitchell International, is a semifinalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 San Diego Award. Now celebrating its 30th year, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs in over 145 cities and 60 countries who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Alex Sun was selected as a semifinalist by a panel of independent judges. Finalists will be announced Wednesday, May 25, and winners will be announced at a formal Awards Gala on Monday, June 20, with more than 500 Founders, CEOs and other business leaders in attendance, at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, California.

“It’s a great honor to be named as a semifinalist for an award as prestigious as the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year alongside such respected entrepreneurs and innovators,” said Sun. “This recognition is a true testament to Mitchell as a company, its employees and how we rally around The Mitchell Way as we continue to empower better outcomes for our customers.”

Sun joined Mitchell International in 2001 when the company had evolved from a mom-and-pop business to a leading supplier of estimating and communication products for analyzing claims information, workflow processing and enhancing shop management and efficiency. At $200M annual turnover and 500 employees, Sun started the execution of a vision to expand the business beyond Auto Physical Damage (APD). This would drive additional revenue in order to scale the company, allowing it to reinvest back into its core APD solutions, while also expanding its solution and service offerings into new Property and Casualty (P&C) markets. Ultimately, the organization set out to embody the principle of ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’ through its expansive solution offerings, providing the opportunity to deliver the highest value and level of service to its customers.

Sun set a mission to “Empower better outcomes” for Mitchell’s clients, and to turn the company into the most strategic provider of claims handling technology, information and connectivity solutions to the P&C insurance industry. In the last seven years, the company has seen a 125 percent growth to its gross revenue and the successful addition of a fully scaled and highly-competitive Casualty division in addition to its APD offering— creating a true one stop shop for insurance carriers. The company is currently a global attractor of top talent and capital and a provider of trusted and lasting customer partnerships to the P&C industry. Mitchell has added over 2,000 full-time employees and outsourced partners, expanded to Europe through strategic partnerships and solidified a top three market leadership position across auto physical, auto casualty and workers’ compensation divisions.

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the overall national award winner, will be announced at the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 19, 2016. The awards gala is the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
