The New Jersey Finalists were selected from an initial pool of 177 companies and represent 12 New Jersey counties. Finalists have demonstrated excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
Two-time regional winner and now a 2006 finalist, Waldis founded Synchronoss Technologies in 2000 to create a technology that would effectively and quickly connect enterprises to the network.

Guiding an enthusiastic crew is as enjoyable as it is rewarding.”
