Congratulations to Bob Moore, CEO of Intelligent Global Pooling Systems Co. LLC (iGPS), who was named Florida's Entrepreneur of the Year in the emerging industries category by Ernst & Young. Wait, you're thinking -- iGPS is a pallet firm. How does a pallet maker qualify as an "emerging" industry? Moore took one of the most basic products in the world and revolutionized it by making all-plastic pallets embedded with RFID tags. The company's pallets are lightweight, strong and reusable, and are easy for customers to track. Moore received his award on June 10 in Orlando. Now he will compete in the Ernst & Young national competition in November in Palm Springs, Calif.
