Hydro Group’s managing director, Doug Whyte, has been announced as a finalist in this year’s EY Entrepreneur of the Year award in the sustained excellence category.
Celebrating its 20th year, the Awards recognize entrepreneurs who are making a positive impact on their society and economy.

“Hydro Group has experienced rapid growth over three decades of business, which wouldn’t have been possible without my dedicated team.
“I’ve been lucky to work with some of the most fantastic and enthusiastic individuals throughout my career and whilst it’s satisfying to look back at my time in the industry, it’s much more interesting to look forward and consider that now is the time to support the development of new technologies and innovations.”
