M-Audio's founder and CEO Tim Ryan was named the 2002 Los Angeles Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in the Media/Entertainment category. The awards banquet was held Wednesday, June 26, in Hollywood and Highland’s Grand Ballroom.

Mr. Ryan was recognized for founding and guiding a company that is currently one of the dominant suppliers in the computer-centric digital audio arena and one of the key players in the desktop recording revolution. According to the company, its vision is to increase virtualization, musical malleability, performance control and portability to an unprecedented level.

While working toward a B.A. in Applied Mathematics at the California Institute of Technology, Mr. Ryan co-founded his first company, Con Brio, which developed and manufactured cutting-edge digital music synthesizers. In 1982, he went on to co-found Third Street Software, a software development company that did contract development for the Commodore 64 and Apple II computers, and later specialized in music software development.

In 1989, Mr. Ryan founded Music Soft, a music software company that was later renamed to Midiman to reflect its increasing development and marketing of MIDI music-related hardware products.

Winners of Los Angeles regional honors are now eligible for the National Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, which will be announced at a black-tie gala in Palm Springs, Calif., on November 23.The Entrepreneur of the Year Award recognizes business leaders who have demonstrated outstanding success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their business and community.
