Ernst & Young LLP has announced Jim Segrave, Founder, and Mike Guina, CEO of FlyExclusive were named as Entrepreneur Of The Year 2022 Southeast Award finalists.
The award recognizes entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who think big to succeed.
Segrave and Guina were selected by a panel of independent judges according to the following criteria – entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact – among other core contributions and attributes.
Just seven years since founding FlyExclusive, Segrave and Guina have built one of the fastest growing and most innovative private jet charter companies in the United States with a vertically integrated business that is truly unique.
The company offers charter service, its Jet Club jet card, Aircraft Partnership for ownership, and now Fractional programs.
“Being named a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year award is truly an honor and a testament to the tremendous growth we have achieved as an elite private jet brand,” said Segrave.
He added, “With a growing fleet of more than 85 aircraft and a relentless commitment to innovation, we continue to deliver on our vision for redefining the private travel experience for our customers.”
Regional award winners will be announced on June 15, 2022.
The regional winners will then be considered by the national independent judging panel, and National awards will be presented in November at the Strategic Growth Forum.
The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Award in June 2023.
