Transparency, growth, technology, service—these are all great 3PL values that look good on paper. But even the most complex musical composition can appear flat without someone to bring it to life. Jan Bednar, CEO and Founder of ShipMonk, has dedicated his 3PL career to bringing all these values to life in ways that visibly, impactfully help eCommerce clients thrive.
With that in mind, it’s no wonder Jan has been honored as a recipient of this year’s Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) Entrepreneur of the Year® 2022 Florida Award. This coveted award honors business leaders who have demonstrated the highest level of entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact.
“EY has honored the curiosity, ingenuity, courage and drive of unstoppable entrepreneurs since 1986, and we are proud to continue the tradition again this year by celebrating this outstanding group of leaders,” said Sylvain Dominici, Florida Program Co-Director. “Each of these entrepreneurs has persevered to make their visions become a reality, and I have no doubt that they will benefit from and serve as valuable members of our global Entrepreneur of the Year community.”

What’s Next for 3PL Leader Jan Bednar
In terms of this award, Jan will now be considered by national judges for the Entrepreneur of the Year® 2022 National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®. The overall winner at this event will move on to compete for EY World Entrepreneur of the Year™ in June 2023.
As a winner of the Florida rendition of this award, Jan is now a lifetime member of an esteemed community of industry leaders across the globe. This can only benefit ShipMonk while the company keeps building its 3PL capabilities, as communication and collaboration amongst leaders can be pivotal for the most prominent growth.
Outside of this award, Jan will go on doing what he has always done: infuse transparency, growth, technology, and service into the operations of ShipMonk’s 3PL endeavors as the company continues expanding globally and developing the highest-level 3PL platform the eCommerce industry has to offer.
