Cleveland, June 1, 2017 – EY today announced that founder and CEO Jeremy Flack of Flack Global Metals is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Northeast Ohio region. The awards program, which is celebrating its 31st year, recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Jeremy was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 22 at the Hilton Downtown Cleveland hotel.

Now in its 31st year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in over 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 18, 2017. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum™, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.

Flack Global Metals was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 2010. It is the next generation service center whose asset-light business model is as effective as it is revolutionary. “At Flack, our entrepreneurial approach and the desire to chart your own course, have multiplied our success,” Jeremy notes. Flack has realized considerable recent gains that are reflected in its 34 percent year-on-year revenue growth and 30 percent gross profit increase in 2016. Flack Global Metals’ April 2017 merger with Kenwood Painted Metals, will allow Flack to sustain its growth trajectory for the future. Flack designs and fulfills supply chains for OEMs using flat rolled steel, aluminum and stainless. As the next generation service center, Flack Global Metals takes price volatility out of the steel industry and adds agility and real-time responsiveness to processing and supply chain management.
