Culture of innovation? Yeah, you betcha!


In June, Joel Hazzard, Ergotron CEO, was awarded Ernst & Young’s 2009 Consumer Products Entrepreneur of the Year, Midwest Region. 

“This country of ours is alive and well. Because of the spirit in this room,” Joel said in his acceptance speech. “The spirit in this room to create jobs, solve problems and find solutions.”

He went on to talk about the culture of innovation that makes new solutions possible. “I’m very proud of the people who are out there, who beat the drum everyday, but also the families that support us.”

And we’re proud of Joel!

Take a look at the full video of Joel, and those of all the winners.
