Ernst & Young (EY US) has named Mike Walsh, CEO of EspriGas, as an Entrepreneur of the Year® Southeast Award finalist.
Founded in 1986, EY US’ Entrepreneur of the Year recognises entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Since its founding, the programme has recognised over 11,000 entrepreneurs throughout the US.
EspiGas’ Walsh was selected by an independent panel of judges who picked the finalists.
Based in Atlanta, EspriGas is a technology-drive industrial, medical and beverage gas company that delivers products locally and supports organisations nationally.
As a single source gas provider, the EspriGas network includes 4,000+ supplier locations with a collective goal to make the gas industry simple.
Accepting his award, Walsh said, “I have been watching this award from the side-lines for many years and I’ve been impressed with the quality of the companies that have been selected.”
“I am very excited that EspriGas is now part of this group,” he added.
Regional award winners will be announced on 22nd June, during a celebration at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta, Georgia. The winners will then be considered by the national judges for the Entrepreneur of the Year National Awards.
The Entrepreneur of the Year award winner will then move onto compete for the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year™ award in June 2024.
