The award recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

In accepting the award, Sam Malouf acknowledge his wife Kacie Malouf for her role in founding and building the company. “At some point, Kacie did every job in the company: sales, accounting, marketing, orders. She continues to be my greatest source of leadership, wisdom, and inspiration,” he said.

I owe the Malouf team a huge thank you for ensuring that work is always meaningful and fun.”

As a Utah Region award winner, he is now eligible for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017 national program. Award winners in several categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of the Year National Overall Winner, will be announced at a gala in Palm Springs, Calif., on Nov. 18.
