Sansone received his EY lifetime achievement award June 19 at the annual EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2014 Gala at the Sheraton Overland Park hotel in Overland Park, Kansas. Now in its 28th year, the EY program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries.

EY honored Mr. Sansone as an industry leader and for his entrepreneurial achievements, growing Sansone Group into a nationally recognized commercial real estate firm. Four of Sansone's eight children are currently involved in the business.  His sons Jim, Nick, Doug and Tim are all principals at Sansone Group.

“I am thrilled and honored to receive this wonderful award from EY” said Sansone. “I must share the honor with my wife, children and the extraordinary team of professionals at Sansone Group, today and through the years."

“On behalf of our family, we are so proud of dad and are so happy that he has received this marvelous lifetime recognition,” said Jim Sansone, principal of Sansone Group. “His guidance and vision made this company what it is.”
