On May 5th, 2015 Ernst & Young announced the finalists for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 Award in Tampa Florida. A black-tie gala event will be held on
Thursday, June 11th at the Omni Orlando Resort at Champions Gate to announce the final award recipients.
“I am honored and humbled to accept this nomination and to join past nominees who I have long admired and respected,” says Scott Harris. He also adds “I’d like to give a very special thanks to the Ernst & Young Board for selecting me – and an enormous salute to all of this year’s nominees, each of whom have made incredible contributions in their own rights.”
The Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 Award program pays tribute to high-growth entrepreneurs who demonstrate success and excellence in the areas of innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and local communities.
By identifying those with potential and recognizing the contribution of people who inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievement, the Award aims to uplift and encourage further excellence among all nominees.
“These finalists were selected from more than 70 nominations by a panel of independent judges,” says Greg Rosica, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Florida program partner. “We are very proud to recognize such a successful group of entrepreneurs.”
The Entrepreneur Of The Year Program, now in its 29th year, has expanded globally to pay tribute to outstanding entrepreneurs in more than 145 cities and 60 countries throughout the world. This award is the first and only truly global award of its kind.
All regional award recipients will go on to compete at the national level. Award recipients in several national categories, as well as the National EY Entrepreneur Of The Year overall award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
