Michael Patel – Winner of Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the year award for the north region
We are delighted to announce that Sapphire’s founder, Michael Patel is the UK North Regional Winner of Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award!
The EY #Entrepreneur Of The Year™ programme goes beyond a competition and recognises the most unstoppable entrepreneurs across the UK – those who are creating long term value, reframing our future, and contributing purpose beyond profits.
Lynn Rattigan, EY’s Chief Operating Office for the UK & Ireland and EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ UK Partner Sponsor, said:
“At a time when many businesses have had to rapidly react to the challenges posed by the pandemic, these entrepreneurs have shown they can innovate, respond and adapt while also creating long term value for their clients and broader stakeholders.”
The regional winners now go forward to the National Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 with judging taking place later this year.
