EY Announces Elliott Bouillion of RES as an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2022 Central South Award Winner
July 01, 2022
Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) has announced that Elliott Bouillion, Founder and Executive Chairman of Resource Environmental Solutions LLC (RES), was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2022 Central South Award winner. Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who think big to succeed.
An independent panel of judges selected Elliott based on his entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.
“I’m honored to be recognized, but more importantly I believe this is a reflection on the whole of RES and what we’ve accomplished over the last 15 years,” Elliott says. “We’ve proven that environmental mitigation, as a great example of a market-based solution, can help preserve and restore our Earth’s resiliency while also supporting responsible development.”
“The RES team got the initial business model right, understanding that turnkey delivery and long-term stewardship were both key to build confidence in our ecological offset solutions. Those early commitments allowed RES to mature and scale our ethic of ecological integrity and creative problem solving. And under the continued leadership of CEO Darrell Whitley, along with our talented senior leaders and regional teams, the role of ecological restoration, our core competency, is only growing as a solution to other key challenges – helping communities bounce back from flood events, preserve water quality, make coastal communities resilient, and address the challenges of climate change.”
As a Central South award winner, Elliott will now be considered by the National independent panel of judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2022 National Awards. National finalists and winners, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2023.
