Jennifer Williams, President of Saint Louis Closet Co., has been named as one of just 21 finalists for the 2008 Ernst & Young Entrepreneurship Awards in the Central Midwest. This group of exceptional entrepreneurs was selected by an independent judging panel made up of regional business, academic and community leaders. The winners will be revealed at a gala event on June 18, 2008 at the Sheraton in Overland Park, Kansas. Jennifer is not only one of just five finalists from St. Louis, but she is also the only woman on the list for the second year in a row.
“These finalists are the best of the best, embodying the unique spirit of entrepreneurism,” said Randy Buseman, Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Markets partner for the Kansas City office. “They positively impact our region in a major way, through jobs, community growth and development and innovation. Ernst & Young is proud to salute them.”
