Each year, EY recognizes unstoppable entrepreneurs who are bettering the world around them. The firm named 42 finalists across 9 categories in its EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® Awards 2019 Pacific program and Milani Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning’s president, Vern Milani, was one of them!
Pacific finalists are a true representation of how dynamic the market is — with some players emerging in new industries, others evolving mature industries and some even diversifying current business models to withstand tough market pressures. Together, this year’s 42 Pacific regional finalists currently employ approximately 7,500 people and generate annual revenues of nearly $1.5 billion.
Vern Milani was a finalist in the category “Consumer, Products and Services”, and even though he did not win this year, he was very proud to be alongside so many amazing entrepreneurs from all across Canada.
The ceremony took place on 3 October 2019 in Vancouver at the annual awards gala, where EY named one winner in each of the nine categories selected by the independent panel of judges. The category winners were named the overall Pacific EY Entrepreneur Of The Year and will later compete with regional winners from Prairies, Ontario, Québec and Atlantic for the title of Canada’s EY Entrepreneur Of The Year. The Canadian winner will go on to compete with national winners from across the globe for the title of EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year in June 2020.
