Meda is proud to name Jashan Eison, H&B Elevators President and CEO, as Entrepreneur of the Year. This prestigious award is given to minority entrepreneurs who have demonstrated industry leadership, business success, economic impact and community involvement.
When Jashan saw his employer, H&B Elevators, consider selling in 2013, he and a co-worker decided to purchase the company. Over an eight-month period, Meda assisted in the complicated acquisition and secured more than $5 million in financing for the venture. Jashan has since shown his entrepreneurial spirit and determination to succeed in business without forgetting his community. After acquisition, Jashan moved the company to North Minneapolis. In doing so, Jashan has always kept an eye on how his company could benefit the community, making deliberate efforts to employ Northside residents in high quality jobs with strong futures.
