EY Announces John Sears and Josh Collins of PresPro Homes Homes
as an Entrepreneur of The Year® 2020 Southeast Award Finalist

Celebrating the unstoppable entrepreneurs whose ambitions transform our world

August 13, 2020 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that John Sears and Josh Collins of PresPro Homes Homes was named an Entrepreneur of The Year® 2020 Southeast Award finalist. Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth, and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world. John Sears and Josh Collins was selected as one of 30 finalists from a competitive pool of nominations by a panel of independent judges.

Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event in early October and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur of The Year alumni from around the world. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees, and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience and ingenuity.

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, including overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.

“It is a huge honor to be recognized for EY Entrepreneur of the year finalists for the second time.  It has been said that relationships are the key to success in business.  That couldn’t be more true in our case.  Without the support of our amazing Employees and Vendors at PresPro Homes Homes, we would not have been able to reach the heights that we have.  So although it is our names being recognized… it is really the people behind us that we share this honor with and who make it happen for PresPro Homes Homes each and every day.” – John Sears and Josh Collins
