Alberto, Paolo and Andrea Chiesi are the National winners of the EY “ L’Imprenditore dell’Anno 2015” Award. The prestigious recognition, promoted by EY-Ernst & Young and sponsored by Azimut Wealth Management, is now at its 19th edition.

“This Award, received in the year in which we celebrate the 80thanniversary of our company, makes us very proud - said Alberto Chiesi – and has for us a double meaning: It is an ulterior confirmation that we are on the right track, despite of the changes and challenges that the company has had to deal with up until now and that our collaborators are people of value.” Furthermore, he added: “ Teamwork is part of our modus operandi and thus part of our success and it is with our team that we want to share this recognition.”
Besides this important Award, Alberto, Paolo and Andrea Chiesi have also received the recognition in the “Healthcare & Life Sciences” category.
The award “L’imprenditore dell’anno”, born in the US 1986, celebrates those entrepreneurs that with cleverness and perseverance have created and sustained with success the growth of their company.
