Brian O’Sullivan, founder and chief executive of Zeus Packaging has been named the international and overall 2021 EY Entrepreneur of The Year.

Zeus is one of the largest privately owned packaging companies in Europe. It employs more than 670 people, has business units in 26 countries and annual revenues of over €300 million.

Mr O’Sullivan initially funded Zeus by selling houses he had invested in during his studies and using all of his personal savings. Since then, he has led the company through significant growth, both organically and through acquisitions that have been financed by debt rather than outside investment. He is now seeking to grow turnover to about €500 million in the coming three years.

Mr O’Sullivan let out a big scream of joy on stage after receiving the award. His message to budding entrepreneurs was one of “resilience, work, make sure you have heaps of common sense, plenty of cop on and that you’ve got a goal and once the goals are achieved you move on. Tomorrow morning it’s all about what we do in Zeus…it’s about keep going and driving forward.”
