Galway business people Daithi O’Connor (Revive Active), Evelyn O’Toole (CLS) and Jim Burke ( have been shortlisted for the 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year programme.

The 24 nominated finalists, who have been selected in the three categories of Emerging, Industry and International following rigorous judging, have a combined workforce of over 5,000 people and turnover of more than €475 million.

Finalists in this year’s EOY 10 month development programme will benefit from mentoring initiatives, executive education, and an international CEO Retreat to San Francisco later this month.

Kevin McLoughlin, Partner Lead for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year said: “2017 is proving to be a year of disruptive change for companies, as we await the outcome of Brexit negotiations, and the potential impact of President Trump’s policies, coupled with ongoing innovation and technological disruption. This year’s finalists were chosen because they have demonstrated the ability to navigate change as business leaders, and as such, they represent the very best talent within Ireland’s entrepreneurial community today.”

The winners will be announced at the televised Awards Gala night in October 2017 and the overall winner will go on to represent Ireland at World Entrepreneur Of The Year in Monaco in June 2017. To learn more, visit
