According to Ernst & Young LLP, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate extraordinary success in the areas of innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Mahjoor was selected as a finalist from a large pool of distinguished nominees by a panel of eight independent judges, after many interviews and a detailed investigation of the company and the CEO's history and business performance.
