Roscommon-based entrepreneur Michelle Daly of P&G Cards (Athleague) was recently announced as one of the finalists of the 2022 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Ireland programme. The shortlisted entrepreneurs span a wide range of sectors including technology, consumer, manufacturing, energy, health and banking, and collectively they generate annual revenues in excess of €800 million.
Michelle will join finalists from across the island of Ireland to compete across three categories – Emerging, Established and International – with one overall winner being selected as The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2022 in November. This year for the first time, a new Sustainability Award will be presented to the finalist who is making the biggest contribution towards environmental sustainability through their business.
Commenting on the announcement, Roger Wallace (Partner Lead for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year programme) said: “Our entrepreneurs this year represent an impressive variety of industries, including consumer, healthcare, energy, banking, and manufacturing.
“We are hugely proud to celebrate 25 years of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Ireland programme this year. Our theme ’The Changemakers’ couldn’t be more fitting to describe our finalists today. Each of our entrepreneurs is revolutionising their own industries and creating opportunities for Ireland and beyond. EY is proud to support the island’s entrepreneurs and I am delighted to formally welcome this year’s finalists into the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year community”.
