Keith Dwyer, Managing Director, Summit Scaffolding
“A great evening was had by the Dwyer Family at the 2017 Wexford Business Awards Ceremony and the event was, of course, very much heightened with delight and pride on winning the ‘Start-Up Business of the Year’ Award 2017. It is a great boost for both team spirit and morale for all Summit Scaffolding employees to be able to say ‘I am employed by an award winning Wexford Company’.
We appreciate the huge amount of work that Wexford Chamber does in organising and hosting such a prestigious event and it was certainly an honour and an experience to meet, dine and speak with so many other local Wexford companies and business people.
Keep up the great work that you do in profiling County Wexford’s business community and Summit Scaffolding looks forward to participating in the Business Awards again next year!”
Richard Foley, Director of Sales, ESET Ireland
“Being from Wexford and an integral part of its business community, we, naturally, have a great interest in seeing the Wexford economy grow and prosper further. Therefore we’re proud to partner with Wexford Chamber in their efforts to bring together the creative forces of our local enterprises and help boost the spirit of success the model county is meant to represent for the entire country.”
Bill Kelly, Managing Director, Kelly’s Resort Hotel
“Kelly’s Resort Hotel were delighted to win The Wexford Tourism award in 2014, but more importantly it was a great evening to join and celebrate with so many great Wexford businesses who excel in their industry and who represent the talent, innovation, excellence and entrepreneurialism needed to succeed in today’s World. It would make you proud to be a Wexford man!”
Helen Meade, Marketing Manager, Killowen Farm
“Winning the Wexford Small Business of the Year award meant a lot to all of us here in Killowen Farm. The fact that this category is open to all types of businesses, not just food producers, meant that we were competing against the very best of all small businesses in the county. The shortlist included some excellent and well known businesses and we were honoured to be chosen as the best among the group. The whole process of entering the awards and going to the interviews and final ceremony really makes you think about your business and its strengths and weaknesses. It is a really useful exercise as it is a great way to focus you on what you are doing and why.
The Wexford Business Awards mean an awful lot to us as we are being judged by our local community and peers and that is the strongest type of validation. These are the people who really know our business , its history and the people who work here and to be recognised by them gives you encouragement to continue to grow the business and strive for greater things. We were very honoured to be chosen as the Wexford Small Business of the Year for 2014 and we hope we have done the organisers proud.”
Edele Lee Morris, General Manager, Kerlogue Nursing Home
“It was a great honour to be shortlisted for the award of Provider of the year 2014 and a wonderful achievement to be named as overall winner. Our category was competing against large, established business in the locality that provide an exemplary service. The award recognises the hard work provided by all the staff and management team in Kerlogue Nursing home.”
Edward Hendrick, Founder and CEO, Sonru
“This export award is a testament to Sonru’s international growth over the past 12 months. Sonru now has regional offices in the UK, Singapore and Australia with new operations opening shortly in France and the USA not to mention our representation worldwide. All that said, it’s wonderful to get the recognition and kudos by being singled out from such worthy competitors by such an eminent judging panel. It’s fantastic, thank you.”
