The winners in this year’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Los Angeles program were selected because “they are out there taking risks and making investments in their people,” Brian Ring, EOY program director for LA, told Frank Mottek, host of KNX’s Business Hour on Wednesday’s radio show.

Ring also noted a common theme among the winners at Tuesday night’s awards gala held at the Beverly Hills Hilton: A passion for what they do, which coupled with their other traits is helping make a difference in the LA economy.

This year marks the silver anniversary of the Entrepreneur of the Year program.
