In 2012, SynCardia is on track to achieve nearly 500% growth over 2009 thanks to Mr. Garippa's leadership.

Winners were selected from more than 400 entries by an independent panel of 32 judges from top-tier news, business and technology publications, broadcast outlets and analyst firms, including ABC, Businessweek, Entrepreneur, Forbes, FOX News and USA Today.
