Corin Mullins, CEO of Holy Crap Cereal, is one of the first Canadians to win an EY (Ernst & Young) award naming her as an Entrepreneurial Winning Woman in 2013.
The North American EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women competition is also an executive leadership program that identifies and selects entrepreneurs whose businesses show great potential for growth.
This is the first year the program has included women from Canada and Mullins was selected along with Kelsey Ramsden, president of Belvedere Place Development in Ontario.
“EY has opened up a wonderful opportunity with this program for women of all ages and experiences. Just to be recognized by EY is humbling and to be among these self-made women is amazing,” Mullins said. “I’m thankful for the wonderful knowledge that I will take home with me to move my company to the next level.”
As a winner, Mullins was able to take part in the EY Strategic Growth Forum held in November, where she met many market-leading company CEOs.
“The forum presents a one-of-a-kind platform for Entrepreneurial Winning Women to introduce their companies and share their corporate and personal brands with a community of EY Entrepreneur of the Year winners, top executives, prospective investors and business advisors,” a press release from EY stated.
Winners also receive on-going support and an EY customized program meant to “catalyze their companies’ growth by building and fostering critical relationships, enhancing leadership skills, expanding business know-how and providing increased visibility,” according to the press release.
