Ernst & Young is recognized as one of the most prestigious business award programs in the country. For three decades, EY has honored entrepreneurial men and women and their companies, celebrating the most innovative business leaders in the nation.
"This is one of the greatest professional achievements I have had the honor to receive, and I consider it not only a celebration of my personal efforts, but a testament to the collective spirit of entrepreneurship in my family of New American Funding employees. We're enthusiastic about our work, but I think it's our passion for excellence as a means to serve our communities and touch lives that really sets us apart," commented Rick Arvielo.
Rick and Patty Arvielo were selected as winners by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event at the Monarch Beach Resort on June 17, 2016.
