David Darmanin, the founder and CEO of Hotjar, a business which helps website owners understand user behaviour and optimise conversions, has won the third edition of EY’s Malta Entrepreneur of the Year™ award.

In 2019, for the first time, an additional Lifetime Achievement Award was also presented. This year’s recipient is Carmelo Debono, who since the 1960s has built Maypole, to become one of Malta’s leading baked goods brand.

Ronald Attard, EY Malta’s Managing Partner said, "EY’s Malta Entrepreneur of the Year™ award has once again attracted exceptionally strong nominations. Although website analytics tools, mine clearance and food manufacturing and retail are clearly completely different sectors, all our winners have demonstrated an outstanding ability to build very successful organisations through determination, a clear vision, and a willingness to adapt and innovate. For anyone who has Malta’s economic wellbeing at heart to see such entrepreneurship across generations and sectors is extremely encouraging.I would also like to thank Melita for sponsoring the Rising Star Award and Corinthia Group for sponsoring the awards ceremony."

EY has been holding the Entrepreneur of the Year™ awards on a global basis for three decades. Now spread to more than 60 countries, they have created a global network of 50,000 entrepreneurs and are the global benchmark for capturing today’s and tomorrow’s entrepreneurial spirit.
