BUFFALO, NY – 25 May, 2017 – JP Midgley, CEO of Avalon Document Services, will take the reins of the Western New York (WNY) Chapter of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) when he is installed as President on July 1, 2017.
EO is a dynamic global network of more than 8,700 business owners in 35 countries. There are 52 member companies in the WNY Chapter, employing over 2,000 individuals and posting average sales of $2.5 million per company.
“EO is a tremendous organization and resource for business owners,” Midgley stated. “I have learned a tremendous amount and it has transformed my business – as well as those of other members. I’m very excited to take over as president for the coming year. We’ve got some big plans that will hopefully attract even more member companies. Collectively EO WNY companies pump over $130 million into the local economy – yet many people still aren’t familiar with it. My goal this year is to change that.”
Midgley has been the primary driver of business growth at Avalon for the last 12 years. The company grew from 26 employees in two cities in 2004, to more than 120 employees in seven cities across three states today.
“Being a part of EO for the past five years, I’ve gained valuable leadership skills that I have employed at Avalon to promote continuous learning,” Midgley said. Midgley is also involved in the business community as a board member for private companies and a mentor to businesses through SUNY Buffalo’s Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership program.
EO was founded in 1987 by a group of young entrepreneurs and offers transformative experiences and an unparalleled peer network to help transform the lives of the entrepreneurs who revolutionize the world. The organization is the catalyst that enables entrepreneurs to learn and grow from one another, leading to greater business success and an enriched personal life. Membership in one of EO’s 122 chapters is by invitation only; the average member is 41 years old with annual revenues of US $18.3 million.
