Article date: Fri, 10 May 2013 12:03 GMT
UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones has joined the judging panel of the prestigious Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards for the North.
Jones, the entrepreneur at the helm of the £100m hosting and colocation firm joins the panel after scooping the North Technology Entrepreneur of the Year accolade at last year's ceremony.
Jones said: "As a champion of true entrepreneurship, it is a real honour to be on the panel and a part of such a brilliant programme to reward the best business leaders in the country.
"As an entrepreneur you are always taking risks and putting your head on the block so to be part of an awards programme that gives these risk-takers a pat on the back is very important to me."
Judging to select the winners in the North region will take place later this month ahead of the awards ceremony in June. Finalists in this year's awards include Paul Stoneham of hair care brand ghd, Colin Stevens of Better Bathrooms and Dave Neilson of Fusion21.
