TRIB3 CEO receives Great British Entrepreneur of the Year Award

TRIB3 Founder and CEO Kevin Yates has been recognised as one of this year’s most exceptional business leaders at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards (GBEA) 2022 Grand Final. He was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year in the Health & Beauty category which covers fitness and wellbeing.

The programme, in partnership with Starling Bank, has recognised the UK’s most inspiring entrepreneurial success stories for a decade and developed a community-oriented network of alumni which grows year on year.

The ceremony was held at Grosvenor House in London and saw 1,400 entrepreneurs and colleagues join together to celebrate a collective £2 billion generated in turnover and over 17,000 jobs.

Kevin is among a prestigious cohort of entrepreneurs who went home with prizes in categories from Health & Beauty and Sustainability to Family Business. He says of the accolade: “I am delighted and honoured to have been named Great British Entrepreneur of the year in our industry category along with the other inspiring category winners. I have always been entrepreneurial at heart and founding TRIB3 has been such a rewarding journey so far, from creating employment across the globe to helping our franchise partners realise their business ownership ambition. A huge thank you for the recognition to everyone who voted and the team at GBEA and Starling Bank.”

Over the ten years, there have been a number of big names to receive accolades, including Alan and Juliet Barratt of Grenade, Shaun Pulfrey of Tangle Teezer and Diary of a CEO host Steven Bartlett. Many previous winners have gone on to sit on the expert judging panel for the 2022 programme.

Great British Entrepreneur Awards founder Francesca James said that the awards’ tenth anniversary was the biggest and best yet: “Celebrating Britain’s ambitious, driven and inspirational entrepreneurs for a decade has been an honour, and we’ve learnt so much from hearing all of their unique stories and perspectives.

“The extraordinary circumstances of the last few years have tested the resilience of our business communities, and the challenges were enough to give many entrepreneurs an excuse to give up. Instead, our award winners did the opposite and, through ingenuity, innovation and the ability to adapt, they thrived.

“We’d like to congratulate all of our 2022 winners for all of their hard work and achievements - we look forward to following your lead into 2023 and beyond!”
