Liquor Group CEO Nominated for 2009 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur

C.J. Eiras, CEO of Liquor Group Wholesale (OTC BB:LIQR.OB) has been nominated for the grand title of "Entrepreneur Of The Year 2009''. Now entering its 23rd year, the EOY is the world's most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs who compete worldwide for nomination and receipt of these honors. Recognized globally, the award is bestowed upon the most outstanding entrepreneurs who have inspired others with their vision, leadership and achievement.
Eiras' past business achievements culminating in the brazen act of bringing Liquor Group to the public markets without any traditional capital raise (in a very tough market we might add), combined with the creation and implementation of his patent-pending Innovative Distribution bailment method to distribute alcohol beverages, all were inspirations for his nomination. Eiras' history of business awards include: Best of Show, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards for several of his alcohol brands in various worldwide tasting and packaging design competitions as well as many personal awards for support of communities and being a benefactor of charities.
Winners of this honor reflect the vision and determination of entrepreneurs to
imagine the future and become part of it, to see change and embrace it, and to set the bar higher. Eiras is proud to be a part of Ernst & Young's history of celebrating entrepreneurial business leaders across the country and around the world. With the rapid growth and positive press garnered by Liquor Group over such a short period in so many countries around the world, there is a good chance that we will see more award nominations for Eiras and his team.
