We are thrilled to announce that Brian Donnelly, our CEO and founder, has been named as one of the 34 regional finalists in the Midlands category for the EY Entrepreneurs of the Year 2016 award.
It is an honour to be included in the finals for this highly prestigious award, with 145 companies carefully selected from across the United Kingdom.
Led by forward-thinking men and women, these companies have a combined revenue of over £5.5b and employ around 39,000 people, thoroughly impacting the economy of the UK.
The EY Entrepreneurs of the Year award has been established globally for the past 30 years and running in the UK for the past 18, acknowledging the work and contributions of influential entrepreneurs leading growing and dynamic business.
Brian will be contending with other Midlands-based business leaders whose sectors range from real estate to security in the regional final on Tuesday 10th May.
The panel of judges overseeing the selection are regional business leaders and previous Entrepreneur of the Year winners, chaired by international businessman Digby, Lord Jones of Birmingham. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 14th June at a black tie dinner event.
The overall UK winner will then continue to Monaco in 2017 to be introduced to the World Entrepreneur of the Year Hall of Fame and be considered for the world title.
It’s fantastic to see Brian’s hard work recognised. We’re very proud and wishing him the best of luck in the regional finals next week.
