ORANGE, CA -- M S International, Inc., a leading nationwide distributor of natural stone, announced that its CEO, Manu Shah, received the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year® 2007 Regional Award in the Distribution Category. The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who are building and leading dynamic, innovative and growing businesses. An independent panel of judges selected Shah, and the award was presented at an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year gala event at the Hyatt Regency Irvine.
In accepting the award, Shah said, “I am delighted to be presented with this award. My wife and I started this company from the basement of our home over 30 years ago. We could never have imagined the growth and potential of natural stone. This is a humbling experience and proof that the U.S. remains the land of opportunity.”
Shah further noted that, “This award is truly a reflection of the ingenuity, hard work and consistent innovation of the entire MSI Team, which includes dedicated employees, our suppliers in over 33 countries and devoted customers across the world. We continue to look forward to bringing growth, innovation and efficiency to the natural stone industry.”
As an Orange County award winner, Shah is now eligible for consideration in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2007 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the overall national Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, CA, on November 17, 2007. The national Entrepreneur of the Year celebration is part of Ernst & Young’s Strategic Growth Forum. The overall national Entrepreneur of the Year award recipient is then considered for the world event held in Monte Carlo.
