Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced that Jamie Henry, CEO of Bee Line Support, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Midwest Award finalist. Now in its 35th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors unstoppable business leaders whose ambition, ingenuity and courage in the face of adversity help catapult us from the now to next and beyond.
Jamie Henry was selected by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced during a special virtual celebration on July 28, 2021, and will become lifetime members of an esteemed community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world.
Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria: entrepreneurial leadership; talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation and future plans. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
“I am so thrilled to be chosen as a finalist for this prestigious award. It could not have come at a more fitting time after leading Bee Line through our most challenging year ever. Making it to this stage with EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year Award is a testament to Bee Line’s entire team of courageous and hardworking dedicated talent.”
Jamie’s company, Bee Line Support, is a privately held, certified woman-owned commercial cleaning business headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. Today, Jamie leads her company of 500 employees and spans across the Midwest. Bee Line has now been recognized as the region’s leader in medical cleaning and infection prevention and isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, to be announced in November 2021 at the 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 2022.
