Gettacar CEO Yossi Levi

A panel of independent judges noted that Levi was a “true entrepreneur” who was “disrupting an antiquated industry” by providing a better car-buying experience to consumers.

In a press release, Levi shared the credit, writing: “Our ability to humanize the car buying experience would not be possible without Gettacar’s dedicated employees and their truly supportive families who day in and day out push us to be better leaders and better teammates.”

Gettacar, founded in 2018, is a smaller, regional competitor to the likes  of Carvana, Vroom and Shift. Starting as an outgrowth of a brick-and-mortar dealership in Philiadelphia, Gettacar now also covers Washington, D.C., Baltimore and the states of Delaware, New York and New Jersey.

The company doesn’t disclose sales figures, but reported it grew revenue 186% in 2020. It predicts continued growth in 2021. 

We last reported on Gettacar when it closed a $25 million funding round in February.

Ernst and Young holds Entrepreneur of the Year awards in all 50 U.S. states and in more than 60 countries, according to its FAQ page.

As one of 10 regional winners in Philadelphia, Levi is eligible for the national awards, which are presented at a ceremony traditionally held every November in Palm Springs.
