ABERDEEN, Scotland --A director at specialist well and pipeline service company Qserv, has won the 'Business Services' category for the Ernst & Young Scotland Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2007. Ciaran Dreelan accepted the accolade at a ceremony in Glasgow.
Dreelan, who started in the industry in 1991, has progressed through a number of positions including offshore operations, engineering and management roles and is one of the founding directors of Qserv.
Qserv has doubled its business over the past 15 months, with turnover this year expected to be more than £35 million ($68.9 million). Weatherford's coiled tubing and pumping business and KCA Deutag's wireline business have been successfully acquired and integrated this past year.
"The success achieved by Ciaran highlights the drive and determination of Scottish companies and reflects the caliber of businesses operating in the region," says Mark Harvey, Ernst & Young Partner and Leader of Entrepreneur Of The Year in Scotland.
"His focused approach and ability to deliver in a global climate makes him a fitting role model for other indigenous businesses to follow and a worthy winner for Scotland."
