MIAMI, Fla., Nov. 30, 2022 — CEO Coaching International, the leading executive coaching firm for growth-focused CEOs and entrepreneurs globally, is pleased tocongratulate client Jan Bednar, CEO of ShipMonk, on being named a National Winner of the Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year 2022 Award.

According to EY, the Entrepreneur of the Year program has honored and elevated the unstoppable and audacious entrepreneurs who think big and act boldly to transform our world for nearly four decades.

Bednar was selected for “applying innovative tech to a mature business by creating ShipMonk, a nimble third-party logistics (3PL) company that competes with the shipping giants. Founded in 2014, ShipMonk started as a way for Bednar to deliver U.S. goods to his friends and family in his native Czech Republic. It went on to disrupt an industry plagued by slow turnaround, inefficiencies, and labor constraints.”

“As Jan’s coach, I have seen first-hand how his incredible drive, vision, and tenacity have helped him build ShipMonk into the successful company it is today,” said Mike Klaus, a Coach and Partner at CEO Coaching International. “I’m extremely proud of Jan for being honored with this prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year National Award, and I look forward to working with him as he continues to Make BIG Happen.”
