Mr. Lyon was named as a finalist in the Technology and Communications Entrepreneur category. The category finalists were chosen by an independent panel of judges. One of these category winners will be named the overall Prairies winner, who will compete with winners from four other regions - Pacific, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic - to become Canada's EY Entrepreneur Of The Year. The Canadian winner will go on to compete globally with more than 50 countries for the title of EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year in June 2016.
"At EY, we applaud and champion Canada's entrepreneurial stars", stated Rob Jolley, EY's Prairies Entrepreneur Of The Year programme director. "Entrepreneurs like Geoff light the way for others by accelerating growth and asking better questions. By asking better questions, they find better solutions to Canada's most pressing business needs."
The Canadian Entrepreneur Of The Year programme is in its 22nd year of recognizing, celebrating and telling the inspiring stories of the country's most impressive entrepreneurs from all areas of business and at different stages of their entrepreneurial journey. Award finalists are chosen based on their vision, leadership, innovation, financial success, personal integrity, and work in giving back to their communities.
