Reading, PA – EY has announced that Conor Delaney, CEO of The Good Life Companies is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Greater Philadelphia Region. 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. Delaney was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts, Perelman Theater Plaza.
“It is an honor to be considered for such a prestigious award. When we started The Good Life Companies, my intention was to create a business that could serve middle America, anywhere across the country. To be considered by EY and the distinguished panel of judges for successfully implementing our initial plan is very humbling. Like many other businesses in the country, our executive team prides ourselves on bringing a blue-collar, Philadelphia-style work ethic to our business every day. Being considered for this award is a culmination of that culture we have strived to create and the difference we have attempted to make in communities regionally as well as across the US,” said Delaney.
Delaney founded The Good Life Companies in 2012 after seeing a gap in the marketplace for successful advisors wanting a turn-key solution to support their independent financial advisory practice. Mr. Delaney, along with his partner Courtnie Nein, began developing procedures, products and support which became the foundation for the offering at Good Life today. The Good Life Companies are: Good Life Financial Advisors the umbrella company for independent advisors based in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, Good Life Advisors the advisor owned RIA, Good Life Advisor Systems a turnkey solution to support individual advisor’s practices, and Good Life Insurance Associates.
Now in its 31st year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in over 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 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.
