Ernst and Young named Malibu Boats CEO Jack Springer the Southeast regional winner for its Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 award. The program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Springer was selected as the Southeast regional award winner by independent judges.
“While I am the person named, this is an award for all of Malibu,” Springer said in a statement. “Leadership and an entrepreneurial spirit are strong at Malibu and exhibited every day by many of our people. It is a huge honor to be a part of a great team that focuses every day on bringing family and friends together by building the best boats on the water.”
Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year program, now in its 33rd year, has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and 60-plus countries. Regional winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur of the Year National competition. Those awards are announced in November at the Strategic Growth Forum.
