Chris Moore, CEO of Concord Technologies, Crowned EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019- Pacific Northwest Region

Global assurance, tax and advisory services leader Ernst & Young (EY) revealed that Chris Moore, founder of Concord Technologies as well as the co-founder of Old Stove Brewery has begged the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 Award in the Mold Breaker category, in the Pacific Northwest Region.

Moore, who started up Concord in 1996, was chosen by a panel of judges who are independent, and given the award while having a black-tie gala at the prestigious King Street Ballroom and Perch in downtown Seattle on the 14th of June.

Being the most prestigious business awards program for entrepreneurs all over the world, Entrepreneur Of The Year notices those entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas including financial performance, innovation, as well as personal commitment to their communities and businesses, while transforming our world at the same time.

This is in fact a properly balanced mix of these sections, leading to the recognition received by Moore. Yet, Moore’s foresight and creativity in three essential projects resulted in his win in the “Mold Breaker” category.

First off, with Concord Technologies, he recognized the advantage of supplying fax through the internet long ago, before the “cloud” moniker was birthed. Thus, he went on to found Old Stove Brewery in Pike Place Market in 2016, as well as his most current venture and major investment in keeping The Mill at Vicksburg, a historic paper mill which he is totally changing into a mixed-use campus which will also include multiple indoor and outdoor concert venues, meeting and convention space, commercial and outdoor recreation space, an Old Stove Brewery and Taproom, residential,  as well as a boutique hotel while stimulating long-term economic revitalization in his hometown of Vicksburg, Michigan.

In the year 1996, Concord was an online hosted service provider for the well-known WinFax Pro fax software.

However, by 1999, the company had formed and supplied the SAAS industry standards for internet fax as well as unified messaging operating via the globe’s most prolific fax software.

 With Concord’s position well secured as the leader in the provision of online fax solutions for health care, in the year 2018, Moore expanded the “CloudFax” platform using a more recent set of easy-to-use cloud software services, which was branded by the company as “NEXTSTEP.” This new service allows for Concord to go past supplying faxed patient records electronically, by giving customers the chance to digitally incorporate those documents into clinical workflows and in the end, making them become usable parts of an electronic patient record.
