Tom Knauff, CEO of Energy Distribution Partners (EDP), is a finalist for Ernst & Young’s (EY) 2019 Entrepreneur of the Year award for the Midwest.

According to EDP, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who excel in innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world.

Knauff was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges.

“I am honored to be chosen as an EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalist,” Knauff says. “Credit goes to our entire team at Energy Distribution Partners, who have built EDP from a start-up in 2012 into the nation’s eighth-largest independent provider of propane and light fuels. EDP’s success is grounded in understanding entrepreneurs in the propane business – offering an attractive ownership transition that secures their legacy with a commitment to customers, employees and communities.”

Now in its 33rd year, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world, EDP says. The awards are sponsored by SAP America and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

Winners will be announced at a gala event on June 12 at Navy Pier in Chicago.
