2 May 2017


Evelyn O’Toole, CEO of CLS, has been announced as a finalist in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ (EOY). There are 24 finalists in total and Evelyn will compete in the Industry category for 2017, which marks the 20th anniversary of the competition in Ireland.

“I am delighted to have been shortlisted for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year award and will relish the opportunity to work with EY over the next 10 months. The theme this year is ‘Leading through Change’, which is ideal for me. I embrace change and see it as a piece necessary to protect sustainability. Right now this theme is perfectly timed in light of BREXIT and US leadership changes in particular, examining relationships, strategies, readiness and opportunities. I am particularly excited to meet and work with the other 23 finalists – many iconic brands and great leaders. I am also very proud to see the West of Ireland being well represented”
