WEST CHESTER, PA — Ernst & Young LLP this week announced that Thomas (TJ) Colaiezzi, President and Chief Executive Officer of LifeBrand, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Greater Philadelphia 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.
Colaiezzi was selected by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced during a special virtual celebration on July 27, 2021, and will become lifetime members of an esteemed community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world.
“It’s such an honor to be named a finalist for Entrepreneur Of The Year®, the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs,” said Colaiezzi. “This achievement is both a testament to the value of LifeBrand’s innovative social media scanning solutions and also recognition to the talented and dedicated individuals who have worked tirelessly to bring our company and products from concept to reality.”
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 pleased to be recognized alongside such a talented and inspiring group of business leaders and congratulate my fellow finalists,” said Colaiezzi. “I look forward to celebrating our achievements together and to our future collective success.”
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, to be announced in November 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.
