Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) has announced that John Trautman, CEO of Visual Data Media Services was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Greater Los Angeles Award winner.

The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The award recognizes those who are unstoppable entrepreneurial leaders, excelling in talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation and future plans. Trautman was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was announced during the program’s virtual awards gala on 29 July.

"It is a tremendous honor to be recognized as Entrepreneur Of The Year by Ernst & Young," said Trautman. "I started Visual Data 26 years ago with a dream of building an industry-leading global digital media services company. Along with my exceptional team, we have managed to do just that. I am grateful to the clients, employees and trusted advisors who have helped me on this path and I am honored to be in a position to do the same for others. Knowing we’ve played a role in the personal growth and successes of hundreds of employees as well as connecting millions of people with their favorite entertainment is rewarding beyond words. This recognition is incredibly gratifying and greatly appreciated."

Trautman is the founder and CEO of Visual Data Media Services, a global provider of end-to-end media supply chain services to the entertainment industry with locations in Burbank, London and Bangalore. For over 26 years with Trautman at the helm, the company has supplied award-winning, quality-driven content management, distribution, localization and media services that enable customers to deliver premium content in any format for any screen or platform, anywhere in the world.

For 35 years, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Trautman will go on to become a lifetime member of the esteemed multi-industry community of award winners, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of fellow alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.

As a Greater Los Angeles award winner, Trautman is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2021 National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced in November at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.
