Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award
The George Bruce Young Entrepreneur of the Year award recognises the achievements of a young, local businessperson who has displayed the necessary drive and determination to make their business a success.
Now in its eighth year, the award aims to highlight a young, local businessperson who has displayed the necessary drive and determination to make their business a success.
The 2017 Young Entrepreneur of the Year award was granted to Alan Gow Groundworks, a family run business offering a variety of services in the construction industry, which has successfully responded to the demands of both local and national high-profile clients.
Following a few years of working both in engineering and construction, Alan Gow seized an opportunity in the local construction market for an ambitious company specialising in works below ground level. Alan made the decision to leave his engineering job and concentrate on his construction passion and his business soon began to develop.
Alans vision and ambition continues to ensure growth, expansion and diversification. He is also passionate that the basic best practices of his business, such as good customer service, approachability and friendliness, are followed by all his employees.
Following their receipt of the award, along with the £500 cash prize, Gow Groundworks plan to develop the efficiency of their office, introducing a more advanced software package.
