Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced Aug. 17 that Yossi Levi, founder and CEO of Gettacar, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year 2021 Greater Philadelphia Award winner, according to a press release.
The competitive awards program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who excel in talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation, and future plans. A panel of independent judges selected Levi, whose award was announced during the program’s virtual gala on July 27.
Gettacar is a digital first platform that enables customers a choice to buy, trade and finance used cars 100% online or in person. Levi built the online retailer after years of working in the car sales and financing community. He created Gettacar with the mission of improving the car buying and ownership experience by removing typical customer pain points.
In 2020, Gettacar achieved a 186% year over year sales growth and expects continued growth in 2021. Gettacar’s success has been fueled by its customer service, upfront pricing, real-time financing options, home delivery, and a guarantee which provides 365 days of protection coverage and maintenance.
As a Greater Philadelphia award winner, Levi has become a lifetime member of an esteemed multi-industry community of alumni winners from around the world – all supported by vast EY resources. He is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 National Awards. National award winners will be announced in November at the Strategic Growth Forum, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.
