Bren and Michael Brown of Frontier Justice named as Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award finalists in the Central Midwest

Lee’s Summit, Mo. (April 20, 2017) – EY today announced that Co-founders Bren and Michael Brown of Frontier Justice are finalists for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Central Midwest. 

The awards program, which is celebrating its 31st year, recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.  Bren and Michael Brown were selected as finalists by a panel of independent judges.  Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 15 in Kansas City. 

“We’re honored that the judges have recognized all the blood, sweat and tears the last three years have produced in bringing this concept to life.  It was quite a compliment to be nominated by an attorney out of our region who works with many national and international clients,” said Bren Brown, president of Frontier Justice. “To be recognized as a finalist was a nod to our entire team, because without a great staff, no one can move what feels like the mountains we have.” 

Frontier Justice, an indoor shooting range and firearms destination, opened its flagship location in January 2015 and future locations are in the works. The Browns’ goal is to change the face of the firearms industry by bringing faith, family and freedom back to the forefront of Americans’ minds.

“In so many ways, we are doing just that, but when I say ‘we’ I mean the entire team,” said Brown. “Because it’s not just two people that create and sustain a business like this, it’s a group of dedicated professionals who have caught onto our dream and are making it a reality.”

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 18, 2017. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth ForumTM, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
