Chicago, IL,  August 24, 2020 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Mike Mihaylov, owner of Montway Auto Transport, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 Midwest Award finalist. Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world. Mike Mihaylov was selected as one of 22 finalists from a competitive pool of nominations by a panel of independent judges.

Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event in early October and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world.

“I am humbled for the opportunity that EY is giving me to be part of their unique program to recognize and support young people and entrepreneurs in their efforts to build a better world.
