- Business award for Germany’s best owner-operated mid-sized companies
- One of the world’s most prestigious awards for entrepreneurs
Impressive growth rates, innovativeness and social engagement. These and other aspects will help the auditing and consultancy firm EY (formerly Ernst & Young) elect particularly strong and innovative companies as »Entrepreneur of The Year 2018« in October. 33 companies have managed to reach the competition’s finals altogether, after a multi-stage selection process.
Also numbering amongst them is ROWE MINERALÖLWERK GMBH which, with its passion and versatility, has grown into an internationally recognized and powerful medium-sized company in just under 23 years.
»We are proud to be in the final round of one of the world’s most prestigious awards for entrepreneurs«, relates Alexandra Kohlmann. »The nomination is a reward for our unfailingly high standards and highlights the company’s quality and continuous further development.« Part of ROWE’s first succeeding generation herself, Kohlmann has been running the company with her father since 2016 already.
EY has been honouring the extraordinary achievements of selected entrepreneurs in 60 countries for over 30 years. The jury’s assessment criteria include growth, future potential, innovation, staff leadership and social responsibility.
Prizes are awarded in the categories of industry, service and IT, retail and consumer products, digital transformation and young company. In addition to these, EY also honours an exemplary family business and an entrepreneurial personality for his or her social engagement.
The award ceremony will be held in the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin on 19 October.
