The Transformational Leader category prize went to the Nouveau HD head, where it develops and delivers professional beauty training, treatments and products including permanent makeup, medical tattooing and skin therapies.

Rradar’s founder took the Disrupter category by storm for a near-decade provision of digital tools and advice to navigate the complex legal system.

Ben Wildsmith, EY strategy and transactions partner, said: “This year’s Yorkshire winners of EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year programme showcase some of the most ambitious, innovative and tenacious entrepreneurs across the region. Representing a range of sectors and industries, these businesses highlight Yorkshire’s strong entrepreneurial environment and thriving commercial spirit.

“Having navigated their businesses through the last eighteen months, each of our regional winners have shown sheer determination and resilience. I wish them all the best of luck in the UK finals.”
