Premier Technical Service Group PLC (PTSG) CEO Paul Teasdale has been named a finalist in the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards.
The shortlisting comes hot on the heels of the news that Paul had also reached the final stage in the European Contact Centre & Customer Service Awards 2015.
As a North 2015 Entrepreneur of the Year finalist, Paul will now progress to the next stage of the judging process – the Judges’ Reception, where he will have the chance to impress the judging panels face to face.
The 2015 North of England judging panel will be chaired by Ian Kelly, chairman of Matrix and Utiligroup and a former UK Entrepreneur of the Year winner.
He will be joined on the panel by 12 other northern business leaders, including Karen Boswell, former managing director of East Coast Rail, Angela Spindler, CEO of N Brown and Jim Sumner, chairman of Leeds-based Andrew Page.
Paul will go head-to-head with 37 other finalists from across Yorkshire, the North East and North West, with the North of England winners going on to vie for the title of EY UK Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 and a chance to represent their country at a global awards ceremony in Monte Carlo in 2016.
The North winners will then be revealed at the Awards Dinner which will take place on Tuesday, June 23 at The Lowry in Manchester.
