Chairman Kim Yoon received the Master Award, the most honorable award in its field, at the ‘11th EY Entrepreneur Of the Year’ ceremony held at Seoul Shilla Hotel on November 9.

 

The EY Entrepreneur Of the Year is an annual award given by EY Han Young to an exemplary entrepreneur who leads innovation with endless challenge and leadership. It is recognized worldwide, often called the Oscars of the business industry.

 

The award winner is selected by an independent jury through strict evaluation according to 6 categories (entrepreneurship, financial performance, strategic direction, domestic and international influence, individual character, social contribution) over a period of about 6 months. This year, the Master Award of greatest honor went to Chairman Kim Yoon. Chairman Kim gained his passion for industry from the founder, Kim Yeon-su, and made Samyang into the most iconic water corporation of our country.

 

He received the award for pursuing quantitative growth, conscientious and reliable corporate management and qualitative development while giving back to society. In his acceptance speech, he said, “From the first moment I set foot on my path as an entrepreneur until now, I was able to seek change and innovation despite all the difficulties because of my conviction that Samyang’s businesses ‘make our lives convenient and rich’.

 

I believe this award has been given as an encouragement to press on and contribute to creating a better world.” Chairman Kim Yoon will also participate in the ‘EY World’s Entrepreneur Of the Year’ ceremony, which will be held in Monte Carlo, Monaco in June of next year, as the representative Korean entrepreneur, and compete for the World’s Best Entrepreneur Award with selected entrepreneurs from 60 countries and 145 cities around the world.
