Co-founder and MD of Nantwich based FMCG manufacturer and consumer brand Fabulosa has been named today (20 September) as a UK finalist in EY Entrepreneur Of The Year ™ 2022 Awards.

James initially secured a placing as one of 103 regional finalists from 89 businesses across Scotland, North, Midlands and South West, and London and South East, showcasing the spirit of entrepreneurship across the country.

After a strenuous judging round James was subsequently awarded a much-coveted place in the national final, following the series of regional heats.

He will now go on to a final judging round, competing for the overall title ‘EY UK Entrepreneur Of The Year ™’.

Lynn Rattigan, EY’s Chief Operating Office for the UK & Ireland and Entrepreneur Of The Year UK Partner Sponsor, said: “This year’s cohort have shown how business leaders are embracing their responsibility as role models and are continually inspiring the next generation. We thank them for making such a positive impact on their teams, the UK economy and our communities. I feel privileged to be a part of this incredible community.”

The Entrepreneur Of The Year ™ UK overall winner will be announced in November. They will represent the UK at the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ ceremony in Summer 2023, a gathering of the most inspiring entrepreneurs from across the world.
