For the third year in a row, Rich Wolfe has received this prestigious recognition for his vision and determination in leading Empyrean to year-over-year success.

Selected by a panel of independent judges, EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year award distinguishes exceptional business leaders who are demonstrating a commitment to innovation, growth, and to their organizations and local communities.

As CEO and Co-Founder, Rich has driven Empyrean to become one of the leading providers of benefits administration technology and services, which has experienced fast growth and success. The company, now its tenth year, delivers the most scalable and client-adaptive solutions to over 450 employers spanning every major industry.
