Ernst & Young started the Entrepreneur Of The Year program in 1986 to celebrate successful entrepreneurs, so they could share their stories, inspire others and receive the recognition they deserve. By 1993 the program started to expand internationally, and today the program spans more than 50 countries.
Now in its 26th year, the program has honored the inspirational leadership of such entrepreneurs as Aubrey McClendon of Chesapeake Energy, Michael Dell of Dell Inc., Herb Kelleher of Southwest Airlines, Fred Smith of FedEx, Roger D. Linquist of MetroPCS Communications, and many more.
It is with great pride that we announce our Founder and President, Calvin Carter, has been selected as a 2012 Entrepreneur Of The Year finalist for the Southwest North region. The regional winners will be announced at the Awards Gala on June 23rd in Dallas, Texas.
