WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EY has announced that Andy Macdonald, Chief Executive Officer of Consilio, a global leader in legal consulting and services, received the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Consulting category in the Mid-Atlantic region. The award recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and leadership, both within their businesses as well as their communities. Andy was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event at the Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner in McLean, Virginia on June 15, 2017.
“I feel humbled to be recognized as the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017® for the Mid-Atlantic region, but none of this would have been possible without the hard work of my colleagues at Consilio,” said Andy. “Among other things, this award reflects the dedication of the entire Consilio team in pursuit of services and solutions that satisfy our clients’ needs. Our competition is dynamic, and our industry is constantly changing, so Consilio has had to continually evolve in order to deliver the best possible solutions to our clients.”
Andy Macdonald and Consilio were recognized amongst peers whose ingenuity, spirit of innovation and discipline have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Consilio’s consulting and services teams assist legal departments of multinational corporations and their outside counsel to respond to legal matters, reduce legal spend, minimize risks and operate more efficiently.
“One of the ways that Consilio has evolved was by creating the right internal culture. Our employees created an agreed-to set of core values which underpin the right behaviors that we want. We believe that by focusing on the desired values -- including collaboration, agility and passion for what we do -- we put ourselves in a better position to innovate and to be responsive to our clients. That’s the hallmark of a truly entrepreneurial organization.”
