Craig Kruckeberg, chief visionary of Minimizer, has been named a finalist for the Ernst & Young ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ award for 2012 in the Upper Midwest region.
According to Minimizer, the Ernst & Young award recognizes business leaders in 140 cities and more than 50 countries throughout the world, and recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Finalists for the award are selected by a pool of judges, Minimizer says.
“I really need to give credit to our entire entrepreneurial leadership team at Minimizer,” says Kruckeberg. “I made the list as a result of the success we’ve experienced over the past several years.”
“Ernst & Young has honored outstanding entrepreneurs like this year’s crop of finalists for the past 26 years,” says Bill Miller, Ernst & Young LLP ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ program director for Minnesota and the Dakotas. “These business leaders have accomplished so much and contributed a tremendous amount to the community.”
