Gabriel Chairman John Anderson wins Lifetime Achievement Award from the Entrepreneurial Exchange.
John Anderson was presented with the award at the official launch of Entrepreneurial Scotland, at the Hilton Glasgow in November. The award was presented to recognise his services to the Entrepreneurial Exchange from 1994 2014.
A founding member of The Entrepreneurial Exchange, John was a shareholding director of a young venture-backed technology company engaged in the design, manufacture and distribution of laboratory equipment, and co-founded a company that provided pre-hospital emergency care and healthcare industry training. As a CA in professional practice he worked with many of Scotland’s most exciting growth companies after returning to Scotland from Chicago in 1989. An experienced non-executive chairman and director in growing businesses, he is a regular contributor to the media on issues facing emerging and high growth companies and was instrumental in setting up the Scottish Enterprise Local Heroes project, based in part on his own MBA thesis Local Heroes Scotland’s Entrepreneurial Role Models. Furthermore, John is the Chairman at Gabriel Investments.
Commenting on the award, John said, It was a hugely emotional but very special night, and it was a real honour to receive the award from the inspirational chairmen I have had the pleasure of working with over the years.
Congratulations from Strathclyde University Incubator on a much-deserved award.
