Tatibouet was selected by a panel of judges based upon his commitment and risk, financial performance, innovation and community contribution. He will go on to compete at the national level at the Entrepreneur Of The Year® international conference held in Palm Desert, California, in November of this year.
"I'm honored to receive this distinguished award," said Tatibouet. "Most importantly, I would like to thank the Aston ohana [family] without whom I could not have accomplished the business success I'm being recognized for."
The Entrepreneur Of The Year® award was founded by Ernst & Young LLP over a decade ago as a community service nationwide to honor individuals whose ingenuity, hard work and innovation have created successful and growing business ventures. Today, the program takes place in 10 countries and 46 major cities in the United States.
