By Carey Fredericks
Oct. 6, 2016 – EY is recognizing an impressive group of Ontario entrepreneurs for their financial performance, vision, leadership, personal integrity and entrepreneurial spirit. The firm named 50 finalists across 10 categories in its EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Ontario 2016 awards program and AGNORA President, Richard Wilson, has been selected in the manufacturing category for deploying leading edge technology and top-performing equipment to fabricate the largest architectural glass in North America.
“Entrepreneurs have big ideas and take risks as they innovate, create jobs, generate wealth and invest in communities across the country,” says François Tellier, Entrepreneur Of The Year national program director. “Ontario has so many impressive and successful entrepreneurs, and I know it wasn’t an easy task for the independent panel of judges to narrow down from 165 nominees to 50 finalists. We’re very proud to celebrate this group.”
An independent panel of judges will name winners in a number of diverse categories, and one of the category winners as the overall Ontario winner. That winner will then compete with winners from Québec, Atlantic, Prairies and Pacific for the Canadian Entrepreneur Of The Year title. The Canadian winner will go on to compete with winners from more than 50 countries for the title of EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year, in June 2017.
