BOSTON, MA, May 31, 2011 –/– Carbonite Inc., a leading provider of online backup solutions which provide customers with “anytime, anywhere access” to their stored files, today announced that David Friend, the company’s CEO and co-founder, is a finalist in the Information Technology Executive of the Year category for The 2011 American Business Awards.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

This year’s Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 20 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than six-hundred executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The event will benefit Camfed (, which fights poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa by educating girls and empowering women to become leaders of change. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network.

“It is an incredible honor to be named as a finalist for the Information Technology Executive of the Year by the highly-esteemed American Business Awards,” said Friend. “In my view, one of my primary responsibilities as the CEO of a growing technology company is to hire the best people I can find, create an environment where they thrive and then let them do their thing. This honor is a result of our team’s hard work and I am thrilled to share this achievement with them.”

Carbonite introduced its online backup solution in 2006. In 2010, Carbonite was ranked the ninth fastest growing private company in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine in its Inc. 500 list, and Friend was named as the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year winner for New England in the Consumer and Small Business Emerging Technology category.
