Ernst & Young Announces Charles Myers, President & CEO of Airgain, as an Entrepreneur of The Year® 2017 San Diego Finalist

LA JOLLA, CA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2017) - Ernst & Young (EY) today announced Charles ("Chuck") Myers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of embedded antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, is a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 San Diego Region Award.

A serial entrepreneur, Myers has founded and managed multiple start-ups and and business units of Fortune 500 companies, successfully guiding new and existing companies through periods of transition and rapid growth. After joining Airgain in 2011, he repositioned the company and guided it to consistent profitability, doubled the workforce, and grew revenue eightfold. Additionally, Myers led the effort to take Airgain public in August 2016, making it the first technology IPO out of San Diego in nearly two years, and was one of the first technology IPOs that year.

"I am honored to be selected as a finalist for this prestigious award," Myers said. "It is a privilege to lead such an innovative company, and this recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication the Airgain team continuously puts forth. I am humbled to share this recognition with so many of my peers across the globe, and to be grouped alongside fellow entrepreneurs who contribute so much to their businesses and communities."

Now celebrating its 31st 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. Myers was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Winners will be announced at an awards gala on Monday, June 12, with more than 500 founders, CEOs, and other business leaders in attendance, at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, California.

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards.
