June 21, 2013

David Passman, president and CEO of Carmike Cinemas, received the 2013 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the Southeast U.S. Region at a black-tie gala awards banquet held earlier this month.

“Carmike has been on a journey in recent years that has seen our organization make tremendous strides both financially and operationally,” stated Passman. “The Ernst & Young Award is an acknowledgment of the tremendous team effort at Carmike as we have successfully transitioned to a growth mode focused on further expanding our theatrical circuit to 300 locations and 3,000 screens. Prior to embarking on this expansion, we successfully completed our previous corporate goals of strengthening the company’s balance sheet and significantly improving theatre-level operations, positioning us for future growth.”

Passman is now eligible for the National Entrepreneur of the Year Award, which will be presented at a forum to be held later this year.
