MPI Chairman Sébastien Tondeur has been honored with the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year award, recently bestowed upon outstanding Swiss entrepreneurs for the 14th time.
The prize is known worldwide as one of the most prestigious honors a businessperson can receive. It recognizes successful entrepreneurs who, thanks to their personal commitment and willingness to take risks, are making a contribution towards strengthening the Swiss economy. More than 360 guests from the world of business, politics and culture attended the awards ceremony in the Maag EventHall in Zurich.
This year, an Entrepreneur Of The Year prize was awarded in four categories, and Tondeur, CEO of MCI's head office in Geneva, was recognized in the Trade/Services category
“Once again this year, we were treated to an impressive overview of entrepreneurial activity in Switzerland,” said Bruno Chiomento, CEO of Ernst & Young Switzerland. “There is no doubt in our minds as to the high quality and caliber of the entrepreneurs from a broad spectrum of sectors. They reflect the competitive strength, climate of innovation and economic momentum of Switzerland as a business location. I warmly congratulate the winners on their success.”
Here's what Ernst & Young had to say about Tondeur: "MCI designs, plans and runs customized events and conferences for companies, associations and governments. Worldwide, MCI helps organize over 3,100 events each year. The international aspect of its business is impressive as well. Today, MCI is at home and operating successfully on every continent. This has resulted in a unique network of event experts, all inspired by award-winning Sébastien Tondeur’s motto: 'When people come together, magic happens.'"
