Mr. Angelo Xuereb, chairman of AX Group has been awarded the EY’s Malta Entrepreneur of the Year award. This makes Mr. Xuereb, the second Maltese person to achieve this prestigious award.
This well-deserved award is proof of Mr. Xuereb’s hard work and determination. From a very young age, Mr. Xuereb demonstrated an inclination to business. He bases his success on four simple, but meaningful strategies – Creativity, Efficiency, Challenge, and Determination. His business interests range from tourism, construction, property development, restoration, project management, real estate, healthcare, quarrying and sea terminal operations.
Mr. Xuereb claims that ‘Entrepreneurship is the seed of tomorrow’s growth. Determination is the sweet and sour of success. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in recognizing my hard work and all the dedication that I, together with my team, have invested in the business’.
The next step for Mr. Xuereb and this award is to travel to Monaco in June where he will be representing Malta to compete in EY’s World Entrepreneur of the Year award together with other business leaders from over 60 countries. These leaders, that have been selected from over 5,000 nominees worldwide, will be competing for the final award.
Previous winners of the award include entrepreneurs from big companies such as Amazon and LinkedIn. With the emergence of this award in 1986, EY has created a global network made up of 50,000 entrepreneurs, all connected by their business-mindedness and their will to succeed.
All the best of luck goes to Mr. Xuereb for this next challenge.
