BURNABY, BC, July 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Ernst& Young has announced its finalists 
for this year's prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year® Awards, and GLENTEL 
Inc.'s President and CEO Tom Skidmore has been selected as one of the three 
nominees in the business-to-consumer category for the Pacific region.

recognized and celebrated the most innovative and successful entrepreneurs 
from every line of business in Canada. The international program operates in 
over 50 countries worldwide. In Canada, the award finalists are chosen in five 
regions from over 350 nominees. The selection is based on each nominee's

revolutionary new customer experience within a mall environment, providing 
consumers an opportunity to efficiently shop in one location and be advised by

voice/data plan, and network carrier, complemented with exemplary service. 
From opening the first WIRELESSWAVE mall store in Metropolis at Metrotown in 
Burnaby, BC, Tom's vision, foresight, and inspirational leadership has never 
wavered over the years as he has forged GLENTEL into new retail markets in

GLENTEL markets nationally through its marquee corporate brands WIRELESSWAVE, 
WAVE SANS FIL, Tbooth wireless, la cabine T sans fil, and its retail managed
