An Edinburgh entrepreneur is celebrating after receiving an award from a top national business body.

Frank O’Donnell AKA The Groundwater Guy received the Entrepreneur of the Month Award from Edinburgh Entrepreneurs Circle.

Edinburgh-based Frank said: “I am absolutely chuffed to be recognised in this way. When my clients are happy then I’m happy, but it’s also great to be recognised by your peers for the way you run your business.”

One of the reasons for the accolade was the recognition Frank received after saving an under-threat Fife community project.

The Gallatown Community Centre project in Kirkaldy ground to a halt when its budget couldn’t stretch to provide drainage for the site.

But Frank came to the rescue with a cost-effective drainage solution keeping the project on-track and within budget.

Edinburgh Ambassador for the Entrepreneurs Circle David Browne presented Frank with his award on Monday [September 27].

David said: “The work Frank carried out at the Gallatown Community Centre really sums up the way he does business.

“He finds no-nonsense direct solutions, which is one of the reasons he got this award. The other was the way he presents costings to potential clients with such clarity and transparency and his attention to detail down to the very last penny is incredible.

“In short, Frank’s desire to be a leader in his industry is inspirational.”
