SAN ANTONIO (May 9, 2018) – EY announced that TeleQuality Communications President and CEO Tim Koxlien is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2018 Award for the Central Texas region, marking his second consecutive nomination. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Tim Koxlien was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 8, 2018 at the JW Marriot in Austin, Texas.

“I’m honored and humbled to be named a second-time finalist for the Central Texas Entrepreneur Of The Year award,” said Koxlien. “This award highlights TeleQuality’s innovation and impact in the telecom and healthcare marketplaces as well as our commitment to closing the digital divide by delivering quality, high-speed broadband and technology solutions to the rural and underserved areas of our country.”

Since 1999, Tim Koxlien has spearheaded TeleQuality Communications’ growth in its employees, business offerings, and business partnerships. TeleQuality’s rapid growth led to its recent merger with national market-leader Education Networks of America (ENA). The combined company provides key communications services with high-quality broadband Internet connectivity to community anchor institutions (CAIs) such as schools, libraries, and rural health care systems. The newly merged company serves more than 6,000 locations nationwide.

Now in its 32nd year, the EY program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world. 

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 17, 2018. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
