Ernst & Young named Thompson Creek Window Company President and CEO Rick Wuest a winner in the Family Business category of the Entrepreneur of The Year Maryland Awards. The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Wuest was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event on Thursday, June 12, 2014 at the Hilton Baltimore Hotel.
“It is an honor to be included among Maryland business leaders who have worked hard to build their dream companies,” said Wuest. “We’ve all taken risks to innovate and expand our businesses and it’s nice to be recognized for it.”
As a Maryland award winner, Wuest is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2014 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 15, 2014.
Thompson Creek is a family owned company that Wuest took over from his father in 2000, simultaneously taking the company’s products directly to the consumer for the first time. Success quickly followed and today Thompson Creek Window Company is the largest, most successful replacement window company in the mid-Atlantic region.
