Ernst & Young's program recognizes entrepreneurs who have built high-growth businesses on a regional, national and global level. Klein was selected as a national winner from more than 300 regional Entrepreneur Of The Year winners in over 25 U.S. cities.
‘Receiving this national award is an honor, and I am proud to receive it on behalf of our clients and our nearly 800 employees who have contributed to our growth and success,’ Klein says. ‘We also are proud that the award helps to spotlight our industry and the northeast Ohio community in which Safeguard has operated since our founding in 1990.’
The national award winners were announced at an awards gala, hosted by Jay Leno, on Nov. 14 in Palm Springs, Calif. This year marks the 23rd year that Ernst & Young has presented its awards.
