Denys Shortt, founder of Enable’s parent company, DCS Europe plc, has been selected as a Central Region finalist in the 2005 Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.
Denys won this award back in 2000 and it was winning that inspired him to expand and start more businesses. Stratford-upon-Avon based DCS Europe has more than doubled in size in the five years since Denys won the award, with sales of 81 million pounds and employs over 100 staff.
In 2000 Denys ventured into a new field—Enable. This company, also based in Stratford-upon-Avon, employs 20 and has sales of over 1 million pounds. Last year Denys started a third company, Enable Infomatrix which employs 5 and with sales of 500,000 pounds.
Denys has a hunger for growth and focuses on providing excellent customer service and building customer loyalty. He believes his drive and determination comes from his younger days in sport when he was an England international hockey player.
Denys will be attending a judges reception on 23rd May 2005 at Castle Ashby, Northamptionshire. The award winners will be announced at the Central Region Awards Banquet and Ceremony on Thursday 30th June 2005 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
