EY honors the most ambitious and dynamic entrepreneurs in Midwest.
DELAVAN, WI – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Founder & CEO, James Kyle, of Millennium was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2022 Midwest Award.
The Midwest program celebrates entrepreneurs from Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who think big to succeed. This group of esteemed entrepreneurial leaders was selected by an independent judging panel comprised of award alumni, leading CEOs, investors, and other regional business leaders.
Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries throughout the world who are building a more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous world for all.
James was evaluated based on his demonstration of long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact, among other core contributions and attributes. “I am honored to be a recipient of the Entrepreneur of The Year® 2022 Award for the Midwest Region,” James explains, “Our passion has always been helping clients be first to market and connect more people to their broadband networks through our engineering enhancement tools, rental and leasing options, and our construction funding business units. Those services, along with the material management and distribution, have transformed our clients’ ability to connect their customers faster than ever before. This award represents the partnerships we have built with our clients’ best interest in mind and that priority has, and remains, our number one focus.”
As a regional award winner, James will be considered by the National judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2022 National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®.
