Glenn has been shortlisted alongside a host of big names including the founders and CEO of Blippar, Flybe, Graze.com, Mumsnet and Tangle Teezer.
The Entrepreneur of the Year programme created by EY recognises the accomplishments of entrepreneurs from around the globe. Glenn will join leaders from 37 other businesses to compete as a regional finalist in London and the South. In the UK as a whole, 145 entrepreneurial business leaders have been selected as this year’s finalists. Together they employ over 39,000 people, generate a combined revenue in excess of £5.5bn, and are making a substantial and significant impact on the growth and well-being of the UK economy.
Richard Jones, senior partner at EY in the South West, said: "These dynamic, fast growing companies – and the people behind them – are vital to the South West region's national and global competitiveness. These awards rightly recognise their success.
"Investment in technology and innovation, domestic and international expansion are just some of the ways these entrepreneurs are growing their businesses and positioning themselves for further growth over the years ahead.”
Glenn founded Reward Gateway in 2006 and has driven its development and growth over the past ten years. Since its formation, Reward Gateway has grown into a £189 million revenue SaaS business, employing 330 people in five countries and servicing over 1,200 enterprise clients, including the likes of IBM, American Express, McDonald’s, Yahoo! and Samsung. The business has changed ownership twice, most recently in a deal worth £140m.The business’s products power employee communications, rewards and recognition and employee benefits and discounts, all through SmartHub®, Reward Gateway’s uniquely branded, easy to access platform.
The regional winners will then go on to compete for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year UK 2016 accolade in London in October.
