E&Y names Scottish entrepreneur of the year

Keith Miller, group chief executive of privately-owned construction business,
The Miller Group Limited, has won the Ernst & Young Scottish Entrepreneur Of
The Year Award for 2006.

He fought off competition from 28 of the country’s top entrepreneurs to pick
up the award in Glasgow last night and will now compete for the national award
in October.
Miler was recognised for his management skills and ‘eye for developing
innovative funding and risk-sharing approaches for all parts of the operation’
as well as for transforming the business into the UK’s largest privately-owned
house building, property development and construction business.

In January 2005 Keith was awarded the CBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours
List for services to charity and the construction industry in Scotland.

Mark Harvey, Entrepreneur Of The Year program director, Scotland said, ‘The
success achieved by Keith Miller tonight highlights the drive and determination
of Scottish companies to succeed in today’s challenging economic climate. His
dedication and committed approach makes him a fitting role model for other
aspiring entrepreneurs. He is a worthy winner for Scotland.’
