Renewable Energy Group Leaders Winners of Entrepreneur Of The Year 2012 Central Midwest Award

Ernst & Young LLP recently announced the winners of their Entrepreneur Of The Year 2012 Central Midwest Award, giving the award to Ames, Iowa-based Renewable Energy Group’s Chairman, Jeff Stroburg and President & CEO, Daniel J. Oh.

Awarded by an independent panel made up of previous winners of the award, leading CEOs, private capital investors, and other regional business leaders, the awards were presented at a special gala held early in June in Kansas City, Kansas.

Renewable Energy Group is a “biodiesel producer with a nationwide distribution and logistics system,” the company writes. “Utilizing an integrated value chain model, Renewable Energy Group is focused on converting natural fats, oils and greases into advanced biofuels. ”

Unsurprisingly, upon being awarded, Stroburg and Oh praised the employees of Renewable Energy Group for driving positive organisational results and attributed the company’s excellent status to the team as a whole.

Stroburg and Oh also recognized and thanked the company’s shareholders during the ceremony; the firm went public via initial public offering in January 2012

“Ernst & Young has honored outstanding entrepreneurs like this year’s winners for the past 26 years,” said Randolph Buseman, Ernst & Young LLP Entrepreneur Of The Year Program Director for Central Midwest. “These business leaders have accomplished so much and contributed a tremendous amount to the community.”
