Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) recently announced that GloryBee President and 2nd Generation Beekeeper, Alan Turanski, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Mountain West Award finalist. Now in its 37th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for transformative entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are building a more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous world for all.
Turanski was selected by an independent panel of judges. Entrepreneurs were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.
“I’m honored to be among such an impressive group of business leaders, disruptors, innovators, and game-changers,” said Turanski. “Businesses have weathered some tremendous challenges in the last few years, and we can all relate to the pressures of survival. I’m thrilled that GloryBee is leading the way for honey and natural food ingredients continuing to innovate, grow, and fuel consumers’ love for good food.”
Regional award winners will be announced on June 17, during a special celebration. The winners will then be considered by the National judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2024.
The Entrepreneur Of The Year program has recognized more than 11,000 entrepreneurs throughout the US since its inception in 1986, and it has grown to recognize business leaders across 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
