EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award recognises entrepreneurs who are creating innovative futures.
We are thrilled to announce that our CEO and Founder, Chris Fraser, has been named a finalist for the North region in the prestigious Ernst & Young LLP (EY) Entrepreneur of the Year 2023 awards.
The global awards programme recognises the accomplishments of entrepreneurs who demonstrate exceptional leadership, innovation, and success in building thriving businesses.
Aspire was established in 2006 as a small business with only two employees. Through our dedication to innovation and growth, we have grown to become one of the largest IT-managed service and cybersecurity providers in the UK, with over 260 employees and offices in Gateshead, London, Leeds, and Stockton-on-Tees.
In 2022, we secured a significant minority investment from private equity firm LDC in a transaction that values the company at £85m, positioning us for further growth and success.
Selected by an independent panel of judges, Chris’s nomination is a testament to his vision, entrepreneurial spirit, and long-term approach to building value. We have made significant strides in providing innovative IT solutions that help businesses grow faster, and this nomination recognises our continued impact in the industry.
