A Teesside entrepreneur has been shortlisted for two regional NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
Josh Gill, who founded Teesside-based water company, Everflow, in 2015, has been shortlisted for both Scale-up Entrepreneur of the Year and Service Industries Entrepreneur of the Year.
This comes on the back of recent news that the company has experienced 10,000% revenue growth over the last three years, with its current turnover exceeding £40m.
Entrepreneur and Managing Director, Josh Gill, says: “You often forget to sit back and think about how far you’ve come as a company and the award nominations are certainly helping me appreciate that. My main goal has always been to create a water company which would not only provide great value water rates to SMEs but would go beyond that and make lives easier through innovation and new ways of thinking.
“We’ve experienced incredible growth over the past few years thanks to the importance we place on our company values, which have helped us work together as a team to take on the scale-up challenge, as well as our focus on automation. We have recently developed our own software, which has both increased revenues and improved efficiency – and has been integral to our scale-up success.
“I can only thank my amazing team for believing in my vision, and our loyal customers and brokers for helping us achieve it. I can’t wait to see what we accomplish in the future.”
The regional finals for the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards will take place on 29 October in Newcastle, with North East winners having the opportunity to attend a national final in London in November.
