Engineered materials and optoelectronic component maker II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA says that CEO Dr Vincent D. (Chuck) Mattera Jr has been named an Entrepreneur Of The Year 2020 East Central Award winner.
Sponsored by Ernst & Young LLP (EY US), the award recognizes entrepreneurial leaders who are excelling in financial performance, overcoming adversity, societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company, innovation, and talent management. Mattera was selected by an independent panel of judges. The award was announced through the program’s first-ever virtual awards celebration, hosted by Deborah Norville, anchor of Inside Edition, on 7 October.
As an East Central Award winner, Mattera is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2020 National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced 19 November, during a virtual awards gala. The awards are the culminating event of this year’s virtual Strategic Growth Forum, a gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies in the USA. 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 2021.
