Jason Beardall, president of England Logistics, has been named a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 Utah Region.
The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. These business leaders were selected as finalists from nearly 50 nominations by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event May 29, 2014 at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City UT.
“It’s an honor to be considered for such an award, especially given the credibility of Ernst & Young,” said Beardall. “This is a great tribute to the team that we have at England Logistics. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by exceptional people that have helped me construct an environment to meet the needs of diverse logistics’ customers. I deeply care about what we do for our customers and have enjoyed advancing industry services through our own internal, innovative ideas.”
Now in its 28th year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 nations.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year national overall award winner, will be announced November 15, 2014 at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs CA. The awards are the culmination of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum, a gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
