EY Announces Kent Stemper of BluSky Restoration Contractors as Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2018 Award Finalist in Mountain Desert Region

Stemper selected as finalist for prestigious Ernst & Young award; winners to be announced on June 28.

CENTENNIAL, COLORADO – May 21, 2018 – Ernst & Young announced that Kent Stemper, CEO of BluSky Restoration Contractors, LLC is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2018 Award in the Mountain Desert region. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Stemper was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.

“I’m humbled to have been recognized among my peers as a finalist for this prestigious award,” says Stemper. “For me, this is more a testament to the outstanding efforts of our BluSky team than my leadership, as absolutely no one in business is successful on their own. I have the best team in the restoration industry and I am truly blessed to serve alongside them every day,” Stemper added.

An industry outsider, Stemper became BluSky’s CEO in October 2014. He led with retaining and growing talent as his top priorities, supported by a focus on developing an outstanding culture.

Stemper challenged his team to greatness as he believed it was the only goal worthy of BluSky. His challenge came with an admonition: “There are no truly great companies that are not first financially successful.” He believes growth goals must be simple and easily understood.

Now in its 32nd 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.

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 10, 2018. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.



Founded and produced by EY, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are nationally sponsored in the US by SAP America, the Kauffman Foundation and Merrill Corporation.

In the Mountain Desert region, sponsors also include Faegre Baker Daniels, Colliers International, Woodruff Sawyer & Co., Project X-ITE and the Denver Business Journal.
