The M. Conley Entrepreneur-Of-The-Year Award

107 years ago, my great-grandfather, Michael Conley, started a business in Canton, Ohio. He had a big idea, a good work ethic, and the indomitable spirit of an entrepreneur. Men and women like him turned Stark County into a dynamic place to live and build businesses. We want to see it stay that way.

We created this new award with the support of local business organizations to recognize entrepreneurial success.

Throughout the year we will present the stories of 12 different local entrepreneurs. Then we’ll select a winner to receive the Award at the Canton Regional Chamber’s 2020 Business Expo.

Today the M. Conley Company is a premier wholesale distributor of paper, industrial packaging, janitorial, food packaging supplies and equipment. We have built an enviable reputation for service and are a long standing member of Network, a $16 billion distribution company.

We want to see other local companies start with an entrepreneurial glint in their eye and make Stark County a better place to live for the next 100 years.

The new M. Conley Entrepreneur-Of-The-Year Award is one way we are working to make that happen.
