Uform Chairman Named as Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist

Eamon Donnelly, Co-founder and Chairman of market leading kitchen door and component supplier, Uform, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the prestigious Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in Ireland.

Following an intensive interview process, Eamon has reached the final within the 'industry category' and now competes against 23 other entrepreneurs with winners announced in October this year.  As part of the journey, Eamon recently completed a week long CEO retreat in Boston as part of a programme of strategic activities over the next 6 months.

Commenting on his most recent accolade Eamon says, 'I am thoroughly delighted to be named as a finalist in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards.  To be named alongside some of Ireland's most successful business people is an absolute privilege.  I have been working in the kitchen industry now for 33 years and I have along with my brother Paul and my late father Eddie established a market leading company which, now in its 23rd year of business has doubled its 
revenue over the last 3 years.  To reach this stage is not only testament to my ambition and determination for success it’s also a wonderful achievement for the company as a whole’. 

The EOY Ireland programme has evolved into a development programme that supports fast-growth entrepreneurial companies with the three main award categories being; 'emerging', 'industry' and 'international'.

Eamon continues, ‘I am hugely proud of our workforce and the importance of our people is engrained in the culture of our company.  The next stage will be a very exciting chapter as we have further growth plans for the next 5 years to double our revenue so the future of Uform is certainly bright’.

The global programme has been running in Ireland for 18 years and takes place in over 145 cities across 60 countries.  Finalists in each of the categories and an overall winner will be unveiled at the annual gala dinner in Dublin in October.
