Cobalt founder wins regional leadership award

Posted on

061610_StClairCobalt founder Pack St. Clair was named the winner of an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award, recognizing business leadership among companies based in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Nebraska.

St. Clair’s award came in the “Master” category, honoring businessmen and women who have inspired other entrepreneurs with their vision and achievements. He now moves on to Ernst & Young’s national competition in November.

“We owe our success to my father’s unwavering dedication and his innate ability to turn a challenge into an opportunity. In the early years, he created demand in a niche market by creating the dream of luxury runabouts,” president Paxson St. Clair said in a tribute to his father. “Today, we are a nationally recognized leader in our industry, a testament to my father’s vision and his commitment to the company and its employees.”

Now in its 24th year, the program recognizes business leaders in 135 cities in 50 countries, entrepreneurs who have demonstrated success in the innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their companies and to their communities.

Neodosha, Kan.-based Cobalt Boats is a privately owned manufacturer of family dayboats and cruisers.
