The search is on for EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015

EY has announced the official launch of Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015, a programme celebrating the region’s best entrepreneurs.

It is now calling for nominations from business leaders in Yorkshire and Humberside who have demonstrated entrepreneurial flair whilst growing or turning around the fortunes of their organisation in the UK or overseas.

The programme is now accepting entries until 6 March 2015, with finalists announced in April. The programme starts at a regional level.

Regional winners then progress to the UK finals, and the overall UK winner goes on to compete for the title of World Entrepreneur Of The Year in Monte Carlo next year.  

In 2014, former CEO of Northallerton-based R&R Ice Cream James Lambert attended the World Entrepreneur Of The Year finals in Monte Carlo, having been crowned EY UK Entrepreneur Of The Year in 2013.

Now in its 29th year globally and 17th in the UK, EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year programme recognises the passion and drive behind entrepreneurial businesses whether private or listed, socially-orientated, family-owned or private equity-backed, across all commercial and industrial sectors.

The awards are now held in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries worldwide.

Stuart Watson, EY’s Yorkshire and Humberside senior partner and UK Entrepreneur Of The Year leader, said: “Entrepreneurs are at the heart of the economy in Yorkshire and Humberside, and the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards celebrate the achievements of these dynamic leaders.

“It is critical that we continue to celebrate entrepreneurial success, and support and nurture the next generation of high growth businesses.

“Their ability to deliver rapid wealth and job creation to help rebalance the economy will be critical in building a sustainable future for the UK.

“We’re looking for the best entrepreneurial talent in the region to join this year’s programme and celebrate their outstanding business achievements.”
