Carbonite, a leading provider of online backup, announced CEO and Co-Founder David Friend has been named winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2010 Award in New England. Friend received the honor at a special gala event on June 24 at the Boston Renaissance Waterfront Hotel. As a result of this accomplishment, he now is competing for the national Entrepreneur of the Year award, which will be announced in November.

"I’m humbled that my friends and colleagues who nominated me, and the distinguished E&Y judges who selected me, deem me worthy of this prestigious recognition," said Friend. "Carbonite is my sixth startup since college and each has been more fun than the last. Frankly, the rewards of being an entrepreneur for 40 years have been enough to make me a very happy man. So being selected as E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year is really frosting on the cake."

Congratulations, Dave. Additional information can be found in the Carbonite Blog .
