It is the news you have all been waiting on...our 2019 Award finalists! 

Elevator, the largest provider of Business Gateway services in Scotland, working across three of the country’s seven cities - Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth, has built its success by creating an entrepreneurial culture.

Now in its 20th year, the prestigious awards – with support from principal sponsor Royal Bank of Scotland - provide the perfect platform to showcase this culture. Celebrating business success, the awards recognise individual’s entrepreneurial achievements, contributions to the north east’s economy and innovative thinking.

Professor Gary McEwan, CEO at Elevator, said: “At Elevator we encourage individuals to be brave with ambition, to think differently and drive change, which contributes towards building a profitable and sustainable local economy. Our awards, once again, highlight the north east as a pioneering, entrepreneurial and inspiring place.

“This year we saw a staggering number of high-quality entries from a wide range of sectors, testament to our region’s tenacity and flourishing entrepreneurial spirit. I would like to congratulate all those who have been shortlisted for our 2019 awards, and l look forward to celebrating the winners at our ceremony in June.”

Regional director of corporate and commercial banking at Royal Bank of Scotland, Mark Gall, said: "The Elevator Awards are the north east’s most inspirational business event and recognise the outstanding talent that the region has to offer.
