Amy Rees Anderson, managing partner and founder of mentor capital and angel investment firm REES Capital, has been named the 2012 Brigham Young University Entrepreneur of the Year by the Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology.

Anderson is the first woman to receive the honor, which recognizes an individual's business acumen and accomplishments and is selected by the Rollins Center Founders Board before being approved by the Marriott School of Management.

"Amy personifies our aim to recognize successful entrepreneurs who demonstrate exceptional leadership and high moral and ethical standards," said Scott R. Petersen, managing director of the Rollins Center.

For nearly nine years, Anderson led all aspects of MediConnect Global, a medical record retrieval and management firm. Under her direction, the company grew to more than 1,000 employees worldwide and achieved 1,500 percent growth since 2004.

In March 2012, Verisk Analytics acquired MediConnect for more than $377 million.
