Now in its 37th year, the Entrepreneur of The Year award celebrates ambitious businesspersons who are building bold futures. The honor, according to EY, is a preeminent competitive business award for transformative entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies, who are striving to shape a more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous world.
Wellisch was selected as a finalist by an independent panel of judges. Nominees were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.
“It is truly humbling to be considered for such a prestigious honor,” Wellisch said. “This recognition – which I share with my talented leadership, staff, and members – is further acknowledgement that Collage Group is indeed successfully supporting brands’ journey to more authentically understand, serve, and engage diverse America.”
Collage Group, a leading provider of cultural intelligence, is partnered with more than 300 of America’s iconic brands across 12 industries to connect with diverse America.
Regional award winners will be publicized on Thursday, June 22, during a special celebration. The winners will then be considered by the National judges for the Entrepreneur of The Year National Awards. These distinctions 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 U.S. since its inception in 1986, and it has grown to recognize business leaders across 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
