June 21st, 2013
David Blumenthal (President/CEO) and Dean Blumenthal (EVP/COO) have won the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2013 Award in New Jersey in the ‘Family Business’ category. What perfect timing! Just as we celebrate our 135th anniversary. It means a lot to us to be recognized by such an influential global corporation, especially since we’ve come a long way in five generations from a pushcart on the Lower East Side of Manhattan! For a look inside the company today, see this video: About Lion Brand Yarn Company – 135th Anniversary Special.

“Being recognized by a prestigious organization like Ernst & Young is such an honor for our 5th generation family business. I’m grateful for the leadership of our fathers who mentored us and taught us by example, and for the expertise and devotion of all our associates.”
Congratulations to David and Dean Blumenthal!
