Kurt Conti Named Entrepreneur of the Year
27, Jul, 2012
The Conti Group’s Chairman, Kurt Conti, winner of the Entrepreneur of the Year Award from Ernst & Young in the Construction and Real Estate category, is catalyzing the company’s services to more directly benefit business growth in new markets. Services focus on customers’ actual economic challenges in today’s tough environment and align with Conti’s core value of helping people and communities thrive.
Conti’s operations teams have adapted to changing markets by working closely with key customers in the early to mid-stage development of complex infrastructure initiatives and driving them through completion. The teams are creating real world “financial engineering” solutions for better return on investment, such as for renewable energy and manufacturing operations. Conti’s transparent approach for customers comes with no surprises and provides a higher degree of price and schedule certainty for process-driven technology projects with mission-critical and time-to-market risks.
Mr. Conti will go on as a regional winner to compete for the national Entrepreneur of the Year Award, hosted by Jay Leno on November 17, 2012, in Palm Springs, California. Ernst & Young’s prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year Award program was started in 1986 to celebrate entrepreneurs by recognizing their success stories and inspiring others to follow their lead. As Kurt Conti says, “It’s easy to be an entrepreneur with you get work with great people!” This refers to employees and clients alike.
