Jason Floyd and Michael Monk of Amerisource Business Capital have been designated finalists for EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 Award in the Gulf Coast Area.

Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., the program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world.

Floyd and Monk were selected as finalists by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 21, 2019 at the Marriott Marquis Houston.

Now in its 33rd year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur of the Year National competition. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur of the Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the National Awards gala in Palm Springs, CA, on November 16, 2019. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.

In the Gulf Coast Area, regional sponsors include Colliers International, Dawson Financial Services, DLA Piper, ADP, Solomon Edwards, Chatham Financial, Pierpont Communications and Houston Business Journal.
