Erin Ulcickas of South Lake Tahoe is the Reno-based Entrepreneurs Assembly, Inc.'s first recipient of the John Moran Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

The award, part of the second annual EA Awards held Dec. 9 at The Innevation Center in Reno, is in memory of John Moran, former executive director of EA and chair of the EA Board of Directors who died Nov. 18 while on vacation in Mexico.

Ulcickas was cited for her work with the South Lake Tahoe EA chapter to develop her goal of opening an artists' collective. Some months after the grand opening of the High Vibe Society Artisan Collective, she realized that some key revenue strategies were underperforming to the point that the business was in danger of failing.

Ulcickas was lauded for revisiting those strategies and working with EA mentors and her local EA peer group, resulting in revenue enhancement and overall business improvement.

Other honorees:

EA Mentor of the Year: Carlo Luri, for his work as a mentor/facilitator in the Carson City chapter of EA since it was launched in 2016.
