Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) has announced that Dr. Gordon J. Vanscoy, CEO & Chairman of RareMed Solutions, was selected from the 2020 Entrepreneur Of The Year® National Award winners to represent the United States in the 2021 EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ competition in May.
Dr. Vanscoy is a pioneering business leader in the rare disease industry, advocating on behalf of those with rare diseases. Thanks to his experience as a serial entrepreneur, committed philanthropist, and devoted academic, he and his teams have received multiple national awards including best company management, fastest growing company, company of the year, best place to work, and best in client satisfaction. “It is an unbelievable honor, as an EY Entrepreneur of the Year National Award Winner, to represent my country and my fellow U.S. entrepreneurs, while advancing our mission—connecting those that suffer from rare diseases with treatment– to the world stage,” said Dr. Gordon J. Vanscoy, Chairman & CEO of RareMed Solutions & former chief executive at PANTHERx Rare. “Although the collective incidence of rare disease is as common as diabetes, less than 7% of the 7,000 known rare and devastating disorders have a known therapy. With scientific advances and the evolution of electronic prescribing, the opportunity to have an impact on a worldwide basis is imminent. I humbly accept this daunting challenge to compete with winners from more than three dozen countries around the World for this reason: the opportunity to promote hope among those afflicted with rare diseases and to encourage progress among the organizations that support the advancement of the rare disease community.”
