REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--B-Stock Solutions, a technology-enabled service company powering the largest network of B2B liquidation marketplaces, is pleased to announce that its CEO Howard Rosenberg is an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® semifinalist. The Ernst & Young awards program recognizes entrepreneurs from around the country who demonstrate excellence, innovation and commitment to their businesses and communities. Howard was selected as a semifinalist in the Northern California region by a panel of independent judges and will join other semifinalists at a special gala event on June 11 in San Francisco where the award winners will be announced.
“This recognition from Ernst & Young is an honor and I am happy to share the accolade with the entire B-Stock Solutions team,” said Howard. “We continue to work hard to revolutionize the liquidation business by applying technology, analytics, and services that create efficiency, transparency, and trust for both sellers and buyers.”
Howard has spent the majority of his professional life using technology to build innovative businesses that set out to disrupt large, inefficient markets. Since founding B-Stock Solutions in 2008, Howard and his team have enabled hundreds of companies, including four of the five largest U.S. retailers, to recover substantially more on billions of dollars worth of excess inventory.
As a regional semifinalist, Howard will be eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 14, 2015. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies. Now in its 29th year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world.
