Sam Malouf, founder and CEO of upscale bedding accessory provider Malouf, has been named a finalist at the 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year in the Utah region. The highly acclaimed awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who achieve extraordinary business performance and demonstrate exemplary commitment to their businesses and communities.
“I’m honored and humbled to be considered for this award,” Sam Malouf said. “I feel like much of the credit should go to my wife, Kacie, who was a huge part of the company’s founding and remains a big part of its continued success, and to the people who come to work every day with incredible dedication and enthusiasm.”
Following a thorough nomination process, Sam Malouf was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges consisting of entrepreneurial leaders, investors, and other prominent business executives. Now in its 31st year, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in over 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.
Sam Malouf founded the company in 2003 with his wife Kacie while he was in college. Their unique vision led them to create high quality sleep products at an affordable price for customers. Malouf’s triple-digit, year-over-year growth and packed showrooms create evidence of the compelling market need Malouf fulfills through its product offerings.
Award winners will be announced at a special black tie gala on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
