August 26, 2020
Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced today the selection of Navjit Bhasin, Founder and CEO of Newmine, as an Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award Finalist in New England. Since 1986, EY has honored entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth, and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world.
Bhasin was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges, who evaluated Bhasin and his company, Newmine, based on six criteria, including overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management.
Bhasin founded Newmine as a boutique retail consulting firm in 2011. Predicting the colossal problems product returns would have the retail industry, Bhasin united a team of retail experts to create Chief Returns Officer®, the market’s first AI-powered SaaS offering that helps retailers reduce returns. Newmine has made reducing product returns an easy and efficient way for retailers to improve their top and bottom lines and achieve financial success during a turbulent 2020.
“It is honor to be selected as a finalist for this award. Newmine is poised to revolutionize the way retailers view product returns and help them not only survive, but thrive during these unpredictable times,” says Navjit Bhasin. “Thank you to the dedicated and talented Newminers who turned the vision for Returns Reduction a reality.”
Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event in early October and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience and ingenuity.
