9Round Founder/CEO Shannon Hudson Named a 2019 Finalist for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award

Hudson joins ranks of unstoppable entrepreneurs in the Southeast region

July 10, 2019 // Franchising.com // GREENVILLE, S.C. - 9Round Franchising, LCC founder and CEO, Shannon Hudson, was formally recognized last month as one of EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 finalists for the Southeast region. Hudson was one of 35 finalists honored at a gala held on June 27 at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta, Georgia.

Widely considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs in the U.S., EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their business and communities, while also transforming our world. Hudson was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges who identified him as a standout among 2019 applicants.

“Words cannot even begin to explain how proud I feel to have been considered a 2019 finalist for one of the most prominent business awards,” said Hudson. “When my wife Heather and I started 9Round in 2008, we were motivated by having no ‘Plan B’ to fall back on. Because of this, I have stayed focused on cultivating and enhancing the brand, which in return has helped me become a better business leader.”

Now in its 33rd year, Entrepreneur Of The Year has grown to include more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries worldwide. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards gala is the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum®, the largest gathering of entrepreneurs in the America.
