Ernst & Young, LLP is calling for nominations for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2011 Awards, recognized as one of the most prestigious business award programs in the country. The deadline for applications is March 18, 2011, with the Carolinas awards ceremony scheduled for June 09, 2011 at the Westin Charlotte.

The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Awards program will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year. Over the past quarter-century, the program has honored the inspirational leadership of entrepreneurs such as Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com, Michael Dell of Dell, Herb Kelleher of Southwest Airlines, Fred Smith of FedEx, Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google, Richard Schulze of Best Buy, Wayne Huizenga of Huizenga Holdings (Blockbuster Video, Waste Management, Inc., and AutoNation), and many more.

“We’ve been extraordinarily proud to honor men and women who have had the inspiration to create innovative, market-leading companies that have truly changed the world over the 25-year history of our Entrepreneur Of The Year program,” said Bryan Pearce, Americas Director of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® program. “We believe entrepreneurs are the lifeblood and foundation of our economy. It’s very exciting to think about the impact that entrepreneurs and transformational CEOs will have on the way we live and work over the next 25 years as well.”

Award winners are selected by a panel of independent judges, including previous winners of the award, leading CEOs and private capital investors and other regional business leaders.

Past award winners in Carolinas have included: Leon Levine, Family Dollar, Pat Rodgers, Rodgers Builders, Randy Kibler, Bojangles. Larry Stern, Talecris Biotherapeutics, Matthew Szulik, Red Hat and Bruton Smith, Speedway Motorsports.
“This program honors the outstanding entrepreneurs in our area,” said David Hood, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Program Director for the Carolinas. “These entrepreneurs make our community a better place by providing jobs, developing new products and services, and encouraging economic development. They deserve our support and recognition.”

Nationally, approximately 250 entrepreneurs from across the nation were selected as Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2010 award winners from more than 1,500 nominations.

The Entrepreneur Of The Year® program honors entrepreneurs regionally in June, leading up to the national awards in November. Venture-backed companies that win an Entrepreneur Of The Year® award regionally are also eligible for the special Venture Capital Award of Excellence on a national level. The overall national US winner then moves on to compete for the World Entrepreneur Of The Year title in Monaco in June. Entrepreneurs are nominated and evaluated by those in each region, including local business and community leaders.

All regional honorees are invited to the national Entrepreneur Of The Year® gala, hosted by Jay Leno, on November 12, 2011 in Palm Springs, California.
