Aubrey Nuzum, Managing Director of Aubren Limited has been named Entrepreneur of the Year at the Laois Business Awards 2017. The award is given in recognition of Aubrey’s hard work and pioneering approach to making Aubren Limited an important exporter and employer within the region.
“I was genuinely surprised to have won but it is a great honour to be chosen and all credit must go to the entire Aubren team. It is vital that we recognise businesses that support and add opportunities to the region as it inspires other entrepreneurs to go out and establish their dreams” said Aubrey.
