Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates ambitious entrepreneurs who are building a better world
Newtown Square, June 8 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Vaughan Buckley, Chief Executive Officer, of Volumetric Building Companies was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Greater Philadelphia Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Vaughan was selected by an independent judging panel made up of previous award winners, leading CEOs, investors and other regional business leaders. The candidates were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.
"It is my pleasure to accept this award with a dedication to those that support entrepreuers around the world," said Buckley. "Entrepreneurship is hard, one of the hardest things many of us will ever do. However, entrepreneurs have the ultimate reward of loving what they do every day. It's the folks around us, our leadership teams and our families, that give us the energy and ability to execute. So thank you to my wife Marie, my family, my outstanding leadership team and their families who support them every day - this win is for you!"
