A Big ‘Yeah!’ for Yacoub

Congratulations to Advanced Circuits CEO John Yacoub, who has been named a finalist for the Denver Business Journal’s Entrepreneur of the Year.

From an inauspicious start — in his first week on the job, they told him the plant would be closed because of environmental reasons — John helped turn the company into one of the prime examples of American ingenuity and character.

The recognition is good for John and Advanced Circuits, of course, but it’s also vital for the printed circuit board industry to get this kind of positive press. Way to go!
