We are very honored to announce that our co-founder and CEO, Brew Johnson, has been selected as a finalist for Ernst and Young's Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Brew is the entrepreneurial leader whose vision brought PeerStreet to life. He’s also been recognized as one of the best CEOs for women and diversity. Since starting the business in 2014, he has dedicated most of his waking hours to ensuring it grows, innovates and adapts. His background in real estate, law, technology and finance have become the cornerstones of the business. The idea behind PeerStreet has always been to improve the lives of participants (including investors, lenders and borrowers), but also neighborhoods and communities throughout the country.
From EY, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program celebrates the unstoppable entrepreneurs whose unbounded ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity that transform our world. That is exactly what Brew has done and will continue to do with PeerStreet.
“Building PeerStreet has been a dream of mine for a long time,” said Brew Johnson, “it is literally the culmination of years of research, career experiences and thinking. We’ve created a lot, but there is so much more left to do and I couldn’t be more excited about where we’re heading. This is my life’s passion.”
PeerStreet was also recently named among Forbes’ Best Startup Employers for 2020, one of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles in 2019 by Comparably, an American Banker’s Best Fintechs to Work For in 2020 and a Top 25 Fastest-Growing Tech Company in Deloitte’s Fast 500.
