MiMedx Group, Inc., the leading regenerative medicine company utilizing human amniotic tissue and patent-protected processes to develop and market advanced products and therapies for the Wound Care, Surgical, Orthopedic, Spine, Sports Medicine, Ophthalmic and Dental sectors of healthcare, announced that its Chairman and CEO, Parker H. "Pete" Petit, has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2015 Southeast Program.
The Entrepreneur Of The Year Program, now in its 29th year, has expanded globally to recognize company builders in over 145 cities and in more than 60 countries worldwide. The program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their business and communities. The regional award recipients go on to compete for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards which will be announced at the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation's most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
In addition to Pete Petit, ten other entrepreneurs were named award recipients in various industry categories in the Southeast Program. EY acknowledged Petit for his success as a serial entrepreneur, and for leading and investing personally in MiMedx at a time when the company had no revenue.
Petit said, "I am truly honored to receive this Lifetime Achievement Award. I am proud to be in the same company as the ten other award recipients in this year's Entrepreneur Of The Year Southeast Program. My successes have all been team efforts, and I share this award with the many talented individuals that I have been blessed to have as my teammates at our several organizations."
