Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Jeffrey Luber, Chief Executive Officer of binx health, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2022 New England Award winner. Entrepreneur Of The Year® is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who think big to succeed. An independent panel of judges selected Jeffrey Luber based on his entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

“It is a true privilege and honor to be named as an EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2022 New England Award Winner," said Jeffrey Luber, Chief Executive Officer of binx health. “I’ve been very fortunate to be shoulder-to-shoulder with an amazing team at binx, where talent and mission have come together to expand access to care for underserved populations everywhere. Through advanced point-of-care solutions and novel at-home collection modalities, we’ve defined a new category of care at binx designed to reach those most in need, in the places too often overlooked by today’s healthcare system.”

binx health creates value at-scale for large populations allowing their partners to combat health access and health equity issues by creating convenient ways for patients to receive necessary care. The diagnostic testing paradigm has had very little innovation since the 1950s and has never been fully optimized to put the patient in the center of their own care. Luber has recognized this gap and continues to ensure that convenience and quality are at the heart of binx health’s programs. Luber’s culture and mission for expanded care access permeates the company’s teams in both the US and UK, manifesting in a drive to innovate and change the status quo.

As a New England award winner, Luber will now be considered by the National independent panel of judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2022 National Awards. National finalists and winners, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2023.
