EY regional winners in KC: Award reflects employees’ efforts

Thursday’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards took three local leaders by surprise.

Matthew Perry of Genesys Systems Integrator, Bill Zahner of A. Zahner Co. and Jody Brazil of FireMon LLC all received the Entrepreneur of the Year award in the Central Midwest Region. The area winners made up three of the seven awards.

“In preparation for the night, I let everyone know ahead of the event that I was not going to win, but it should be a good time,” FireMon CEO Brazil said. “To be named a winner was quite a shock for me and certainly an honor.”
