EY has named Budget Dumpster co-founders John Fenn and Mark Campbell as finalists for the EY Entrepreneur of Year 2016 award in the Northeast Ohio Region
The award recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

“We were humbled to be nominated by our employees and now honored as a finalist by EY,” said Fenn. “Mark and I are finalists solely because of the hard work and dedication of our 60-person team.”
A group of independent judges selected Fenn and Campbell based on written nominations and in-person interviews.
