Daryl Flood, founder and CEO of Daryl Flood Relocation and Logistics, was recently named a finalist for the Ernst & Young 2011 Entrepreneur of the Year award. Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award is a celebration of the world’s most influential and innovative entrepreneurs. The award is recognized as the premier award for entrepreneurship.
“I am very honored to be recognized in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year program this year. It is a distinction I must say I share with the entire Daryl Flood Relocation & Logistics family. With such great people surrounding me, it is easy to perform with excellence,” said Mr. Flood.
