Height for Hire meets the EY Entrepreneur of the Year judges

Today, Height for Hire's Managing Director Fergus Mc Ardle and Operations Director Frances Mc Ardle will 'Meet the Judges' in the final lap of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 journey. Height for Hire was shortlisted in the International Category.

It’s been a great journey so far, which involved an intensive week-long CEO Camp in San Francisco in June, where Frances and Fergus met with the other finalists and alumni past and present, making valuable business contacts and some new friends.

We also had lots of fun working with the production team at Loosehorse Ltd who were filming Team Height for Hire in August. The five-part TV series will air on TV3’s Be3 each Monday at 8pm, commencing on the 25th September and will feature all 24 finalists. We will keep you posted on the exact date for our extreme close up nearer the time.

The winner will be announced at the Gala Awards on Thursday 26th October and the five-part series will culminate with a one-hour Awards Gala special, which will air at 8pm on October 30th .

Commenting on the experience Fergus said, “It’s a real privilege to be considered for this award among such innovative, creative and hard working people and we are delighted to be a part of it. We are all finding a way to make our companies realise their full potential, and having other like-minded people to share your ideas and challenges with is invaluable.

Frances said “To be considered for this award is a welcome acknowledgement, not just to the family and management team at Height for Hire, but also to all the hard working people in our company who make it happen every day, rolling out a quality service to all our customers.”
