Avella Specialty Pharmacy today announced that founder and CEO John Musil has been selected as a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2013 Award in the Mountain Desert region. Musil is included in an elite group of business leaders from the region encompassing Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.
The awards program recognizes high-growth entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in areas including innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their business and communities. Finalists were chosen by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on Thursday, June 20, at the Denver Center for Performing Arts.
“I am honored to be a finalist for such a prestigious award,” said Musil. “To be named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year would be a tremendous achievement, but even being recognized as a finalist is incredible. I am proud to lead and represent an organization dedicated to providing personalized specialty pharmacy services to physicians and patients.”
Collectively, the group of 26 Mountain Desert region finalists grew their company’s revenues by more than 50 percent between 2010 and 2012.
Regional award winners will go on to compete at a national level. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the National Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, Calif., in November. The awards are the culminating event of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
