Ian Christelow, co-founder of ActionCOACH UK, awarded Entrepreneur of the Year 2016
December 12th, 2016
European CEO Magazine has awarded Ian Christelow, co-founder and managing Director of ActionCOACH UK, the world’s number one business coaching franchise, the title “Entrepreneur of the Year 2016”, in the ‘Business Coaching’ category for Western Europe.
The renowned expert magazine for international business finance has been recognising outstanding successes and innovations since 2007. The awards were launched in 2015 via World Finance Magazine and were based solely on the Financial Industry – for 2016 they changed the criteria awards to focus on CEOs across Eastern and Western Europe, via European CEO Magazine and it is on this basis that all the CEOs were asked to nominate people they have worked with for these awards.
In 2015 they included the category “Entrepreneur of the Year” for the first time in order to recognize the achievements of outstanding entrepreneurs in the international finance arena, and now in the wider market.
The magazine explains the motivation behind creating this category as part of the awarding criteria, “Entrepreneurs are visionaries who are instrumental in the success of a business. These awards recognize those special traits that make successful entrepreneurs so inspiring”. European CEO Magazine and the jury combined boast over 230 years of business journalism expertise.
