Mavis Discount Tire co-owners receive metro New York award
Mavis Discount Tire co-owners Stephen and David Sorbaro recently received the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2007 Award in the "Turn Around" category in the metropolitan New York area.
Based in Mount Kisco, N.Y., Mavis Discount Tire is the 12th largest independent tire store chain in the United States, according to Modern Tire Dealer. A dealership spokesman says success comes from "focusing on the fundamentals."
According to Ernst & Young, the award recognizes "outstanding entrepreneurs who are building and leading dynamic, growing businesses."
The Sorbaros were selected by an independent panel of judges. As metro New York area award winners, they are eligible for consideration for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2007 national program. National winners will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, Calif., Nov. 17, 2007.
The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program was created 21 years ago by Ernst & Young LLP.
