iLobby CEO Ariel Mashiyev is honored to be recognized by the Ontario Business Achievement Awards (OBAA) as the 2019 Young Entrepreneur of the Year. OBAA is one of the most respected industry galas in the province and has been celebrating Ontario business success since 1983. The awards acknowledge incredible innovations and achievements spanning a broad range of industries across the province.

“To be recognized by both our local community and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce is a true testament to our hard work and dedication to customer service,” said CEO Ariel Mashiyev, “Thank you to the judges and OBAA for this recognition – it’s truly an award for the entire iLobby team.”

iLobby CEO Ariel Mashiyev was among esteemed entrepreneurs and 2019 OBAA winners which included ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award winner David Patchell-Evans, Founder and CEO of Goodlife Fitness, and the ‘CEO of the Year’ award winner Howard Eng, CEO of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority.

The Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award recognizes an Ontario entrepreneur who has successfully built a unique and game-changing venture with a demonstrable high sales potential and proven ability to establish strategic partnerships.

iLobby has seen tremendous growth in just the past 2 years, and technology has made it easy to expand its reach internationally to 40+ countries around the world. Despite the global vision, iLobby remains a Canadian-based company with headquarters in Toronto, as the diversity and strength of the talent in Toronto are part of what has led the company to rapid growth and innovation.

Having persevered through challenges within new verticals and adapting to changing client requirements, iLobby has successfully been able to fill a large void in the market. “I am deeply thankful to each and every team member. I know that highly engaged team members drive great business results. That is why this award belongs to the team as a whole.” said Mr. Mashiyev.
