Andrew Hulbert Makes Awards Shortlist

04 September 2018
 

Andrew Hulbert of Pareto FM has been shortlisted for the 2018 NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the Services Industry Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Andrew beat off tough competition to make the regional shortlist, with a record number of businesses entering the awards nationally across the wide range of categories.

Now in its sixth year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards has celebrated some amazing entrepreneurs, many of whom are now household names. Past winners include David Buttress of Just Eat, James Watt of BrewDog and most recently, Hannah and Sophie Pycroft of Spectrum Collections.

Andrew commented “I am absolutely humbled to be shortlisted for these awards. Most importantly this nomination showcases the FM sector in a UK wide context, not just within the FM industry. This award nomination is testament to the incredible team that we have and the things we have achieved with their dedication.  Pareto FM started as a philosophy for how FM services could be delivered with a key focus on engagement, social value and innovation. We get to live that philosophy every day and we ‘love what we do’.  We are thrilled this has been recognised in a wider context and hopefully will go far to promoting the importance of the FM sector to UK plc.”

Creator of the Awards, Francesca James, said: “We have been inundated with incredible entries and all shortlisted applicants should be extremely proud of themselves.  We have been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”

Gordon Merrylees, Head of Entrepreneurship at NatWest said: "Following another record-breaking year, I thank all of the entrepreneurs who entered and congratulate those who have been shortlisted. I look forward to seeing them at the regional finals.”

“Entrepreneurial spirit is still clearly alive and well and NatWest is thrilled to be able to continue to support these awards to celebrate success with the businesses that are the lifeblood of the UK Economy as they start, scale and succeed.”

The NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards will celebrate entrepreneurship across a number of categories at 5 gala finals in Cardiff, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Manchester and London.
