Minimizer announced that Craig Kruckeberg, the company’s chief visionary officer, recently was included on the list of finalists for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2012 Award in the Upper Midwest.
The award, now in its 26th year, has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 140 cities in more than 50 countries throughout the world. The program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
Selection of these business leaders occurs from a strong pool of nominations by a panel of independent judges. The Upper Midwest region includes companies based in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
“Ernst & Young has honored outstanding entrepreneurs like this year’s crop of finalists for the past 26 years,” said Bill Miller, Ernst & Young 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.”
