Satya Tiwari, president of rug and home décor supplier Surya, is a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 award for the Southeast Region.

The award honors business leaders who excel in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

“It is truly an honor to be selected as a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year Award and to be considered in the ranks of the Southeast’s most visionary business leaders,” said Tiwari. “The Surya team’s passion and commitment to our customers has been a driving factor for all the decisions that have contributed to Surya’s growth and success, and I attribute this achievement to them.”

Under Tiwari’s leadership, Surya has grown organically from $2.7 million in sales in 2004 to $116 million in 2016. Since 2010, he has incrementally added new product categories each year, branching from rugs to pillows, throws, bedding, wall decor, accent furniture and decorative accents. Last year, the company moved into its 1 million-sq.-ft., state-of-the-art corporate headquarters and distribution center, which currently houses more than 500 employees and stocks more than 60,000 products. Surya has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of America’s fastest growing privately held companies for six years in a row.

Chosen by a panel of independent judges, regional award winners will be announced at a special gala on June 8 at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. The overall winners will be announced at the Entrepreneur of the Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, Calif., on Nov. 18.
