The program celebrates original founders who bootstrapped their business from inception or who raised outside capital to grow their company; transformational CEOs who infused innovation into an existing organization to catapult its trajectory; and multigenerational family business leaders who reimagined a legacy business model to fortify it for the future,’ shares the Ernst + Young team about the award.

“I am beyond honored to have been recognized as a winner in the East Central region. This award truly came as a shock, as I was already beyond blessed to have been a finalist.  The people I have met along this journey at Ernst and Young and the fellow award recipients are incredibly inspirational.
