Ernst & Young LLP named Daryl Adams, The Shyft Group president and CEO, a Michigan and Northwest Ohio Entrepreneur Of The Year 2022 award winner.
The Shyft Group is the parent company of Spartan RV Chassis.
Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur Of The Year award is one of the pre-eminent competitive business awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies, The Shyft Group said.
Adams was selected by a panel of independent judges who evaluated candidates for their entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.
Adams accepted the award at the Michigan and Northwest Ohio awards celebration June 23 in Detroit.
“I am truly honored to be recognized by EY and in such good company with the other regional winners who are similarly devoted to building a more equitable, sustainable and prosperous world,” Adams said. “For nearly 50 years, The Shyft Group has been known as an essential partner to entrepreneurs in the commercial vehicle industry, providing bespoke and technology-forward solutions that enable fleet managers and drivers to grow their businesses.”
As a Michigan and Northwest Ohio award winner, Adams will advance to the national independent judging panel. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum.
“I could not have achieved this honor without the support of my family and colleagues,” Adams said. “At Shyft, taking smart risks to create a better world means we must focus on staying agile, nimble, flexible, proactive and solution-based. This leadership strategy has allowed us to navigate the rapidly evolving industry landscape and its challenges while planning ahead for the many opportunities that will come from these changes.”
