The fourth episode of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 will air on Monday, October 17, and will feature Jimmy Magee, CEO of Athlone Extrusions Limited.
Formed in 1983, Athlone Extrusions is a manufacturer of co-extruded multilayer thermoplastic sheets and foils which are moulded and fabricated by its customers into components for a wide variety of industries across 36 countries.
“Before I had reached 12, I left school and didn’t get the opportunity of second level education, but it shouldn’t stop you from doing what you want to do. Life is a great education,” Jimmy said. “I don’t see myself as an entrepreneur, I’m more the ‘wheeler dealer’ type, I get a great buzz of buying and selling.”
The show will air on Monday evening, October 17, on UTV Ireland.
