Seafood boss lands awards as top tycoon

A businessman who netted a multi-million pound fortune when his seafood firm was bought in a 40million deal has been named Scotland's Tycoon of the Year.

Bill Hazeldean sold his company Aberdeenshire-based Macrae Food Group, to Young's Bluecrest in July.

Last night the Entrepreneurial Exchange business support body honoured Mr Hazeldean, 53, at a gala dinner in Glasgow.

The Exchange said Mr Hazeldean won the award in recognition of the rapid growth of his business over the past ten years.  The workforce grew from 40 to 1,300 while annual sales rose from 1million to 87million.

Exchange vice-chairman and Gadget Shop boss Chris Gorman said:

'Bill built Macrae into a significant force in the food industry.'

Simon Howie, who set up a Perth butchery business, won the Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
