MD Of York-based Pavers Shoes Wins ‘Sustained Excellence’ Award At EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2019 Uk Final
Stuart Paver
Stuart Paver, Managing Director of York-based Pavers Shoes, has been presented with the ‘Sustained Excellence’ award at the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ ceremony in London.

Pavers is a family-owned footwear business, with over 235 stores across the globe, all managed from the head office in York. Founded in 1971 by Catherine Paver, who took out a £200 bank loan to start her business, the company has established itself as one of the UK’s leading comfort shoe retailers.

Stuart Paver took home the ‘Sustained Excellence’ award and was commended by the judges for taking “his family business from a single shop to 235 highly profitable stores across many continents”. The judges also recognised the company’s “great societal impact” under Stuart’s guidance, after he set up the largest NGO provider of orthopaedic footwear to those suffering from leprosy in South Asia.

Victoria Price
Victoria Price, Partner and EY Entrepreneur Of The Year leader in the North, said: “Congratulations to Stuart for being a worthy winner at the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year awards last night, where he was up against some of the UK’s most inspirational entrepreneurs. Pavers Shoes is the perfect example of the incredible entrepreneurial community we have here in the North.

“Stuart has not only grown Pavers Shoes into a leading comfort footwear retailer, contributing to the continued growth of the North’s economy, but also continues to demonstrate great social awareness both locally and internationally.”
