n-ergy’s story began in June 2007 as a privately owned business set up by Chief Executive, Donna Turner-Kot, to work with offenders and ex-offenders.
A strong desire to help ex-offenders rehabilitate was a driving force in starting the business. As a female entrepreneur, Donna is passionate about making a difference and truly believes everyone deserves a second chance!
Through previous experience of working in vocational training within the custodial sector, a gap in the market was identified by Donna to provide a seamless service from custody into the community and into employment.
[ezcol_2third]As a result of Donna’s vision, tenacity and leadership to grow the business, n-ergy’s business model became achievable. Within a relatively short period of time after start-up, n-ergy then received recognition for its fast growth in the Wales Fast Growth 50 listing for three consecutive years [2011-2013] followed by further expansion and growth and winning a number of awards. These included Donna being awarded Corporate Responsibility Director of the Year by IoD Wales in 2014 and prior to that, a special commendation in Best Business Leader in Welsh Women Means Business Awards and named Entrepreneur of the Year by the South Wales Chamber of Commerce.
