Frisco exec among National Entrepreneur honorees

Spencer Rascoff, CEO of real-estate website Zillow, has been named the EY National Entrepreneur of the Year 2013 Service Award winner.
 
The award, given by global tax, assurance and advisory services firm Ernst & Young Global Ltd., encourages entrepreneurial activity and recognizes leaders and visionaries demonstrating innovation, financial success and personal commitment.
 
Rascoff was recognized for overcoming initial industry reluctance to create Zillow, an online marketplace allowing customers to make smarter decisions about real estate. He was honored at the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards gala, recently held in Palm Springs, Calif.
 
"The team that started Zillow, including myself, is made up of the same folks who started Expedia," Rascoff said in a news release.
 
"Expedia ruffled a lot of feathers in the travel industry by putting a lot of travel agents out of business. At Zillow, we had to explain that while we empower consumers by giving them access to information, we still believe real estate professionals play a crucial role in the industry," Rascoff said.
 
Among other honorees was Stephen Mooney, president and CEO of Conifer Health Solutions in Frisco. Mooney was among five Service category finalists.
 
EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners were selected by an independent panel of judges and from more than 250 regional award recipients.
