GUELPH, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 27, 2005) -


Brian Herner, president and CEO of BIOREM Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BRM), was recently honoured as a finalist in the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

From an impressive list of nominees, Herner was selected as a finalist in the Health Sciences business category for the region of Ontario. Each nominee had to be considered as a best-in-class entrepreneur, and was chosen for business leadership skills, determination and vision.

The Entrepreneur of the Year awards honour entrepreneurs who have demonstrated excellence and extraordinary success. Submissions are reviewed by an independent judging panel, which is composed of several distinguished Canadian business leaders and previous award recipients.

Herner had been nominated by Brian Hunter of Roynat Capital in Kitchener for qualities and achievements in the areas of entrepreneurial spirit, financial performance, innovation, personal integrity and industry impact.

"Brian seemed like a good candidate for the Entrepreneur of the Year award," says Hunter. "He has persevered in overcoming obstacles, and been innovative in developing products that meet customers' needs. He has successfully changed the direction of the Biorem, which is now achieving considerable commercial success. He has found new technologies to deploy in large market, and he's exactly what the Ernst & Young awards were looking for."

In response, Herner reveals, "I consider the nomination as Entrepreneur of the Year to be particularly complimentary, since it is made by professional associates in business. They recognize the effort and dedication required to carry a business concept through the tough development stages until you finally achieve business success. I am honoured to be chosen as a finalist and in its own way, this will provide additional stimulus to carry the company to even greater heights."

The Entrepreneur of the Year program was founded by Ernst & Young to celebrate great entrepreneurs and heighten awareness of the economic impact of entrepreneurial ventures.
