Britespan Building Systems Inc. is proud to be announced as an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 award finalist in Ontario.
“This is our third year as a category finalized for the Ontario program, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Ben Hogervorst, CEO of Britespan. “Each year we bring something new to our nomination and share how we are responding to changes in the economy and our market, and how we continue to challenge our industry.”
“The majority of this year’s finalists have an international reach — and impact. They’re driving positive change in local economies and communities, and those around the world,” says Paula Smith, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Ontario Program Co-Director. “We’re proud to see businesses from this region responding to global demands and making a difference, and that we can tell their success stories.”
Across global markets, this year’s 42 Ontario finalists currently employ 17,080 people and generate annual revenues of almost $5 billion.
The Ontario finalists will come together on 24 October 2019 in Toronto at the annual awards gala, where EY will name one winner in each of the nine categories selected by the independent panel of judges.
