Carlsbad, California – (June 19, 2023) AutoClaims Direct (ACD) is thrilled to announce that CEO Ernie Bray was recently named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award for Best Entrepreneur in the Insurance Category in the 21st Annual American Business Awards®.

Bray was recognized for his leadership over the past few years in guiding ACD through a transformation which included moving to a virtual work environment, enhancing ACD's technology platform and reimagining ACD's workflow teams. This was accomplished after coming out of the global pandemic which was one of the most challenging business environments in recent times.

"The last few years have been a challenge for any entrepreneur so it's an honor to receive recognition but it's really the combined effort of each and every person on my leadership team. Their efforts have driven every initiative forward whether it was transitioning the team to a remote model, launching our CLARITY technology platform and CLARITY Pro mobile app, and executing on our mission to completely revamp the structure of our workflow teams," stated Bray. "Every team member has stepped up and powered the vision of the company forward. We have some exciting things ahead and everything we do is built around teamwork."
