Life Fitness's Clawson named a finalist for entrepreneur of the year

Only three years after joining Life Fitness, Chris Clawson was pegged as a "high potential employee."

Now, a little more than 15 years later, the president of the company is still being recognized. He was named a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year for the Midwest region. The winner will be announced on June 27 and will be in the running for the national award.

Clawson left the company from 2004-10 when he worked at Omni Fitness, Matrix Fitness and Johnson Health Tech, returning to Life Fitness as the president.

"This recognition is a reflection of our company’s resurgence in not only executive leadership, but also industry leadership,” Clawson said in a blog entry on the Life Fitness website.
