P.B. Scott named EY’s Master Entrepreneur of the Year for Ja | Lead Stories | Jamaica Gleaner

Businessman P.B. Scott has been named the recipient of the Master Entrepreneur of The Year (EOY) 2023 Jamaica award.

The announcement was made during a ceremony held Saturday evening at the Hyatt Zilara, where his wife, Jen Scott, received the award on his behalf.

EYC, the Caribbean segment of global consulting firm EY, recognised Scott for his leadership, strategic vision, and significant contributions to business innovation and social growth in the island.

Beyond business success, Scott has shown a commitment to social responsibility and community empowerment.

He actively engages in philanthropic initiatives through his company’s foundations, focusing on education, food security, and community development. Thousands have benefited from scholarships, school-feeding programmes, and investing in STEAM education.

The EOY serves as a platform to recognise and celebrate outstanding entrepreneurs who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and innovation in their respective fields. The Master category is one determined by expert selection, and according to the EY, Scott’s achievements, entrepreneurial spirit, and passion to build Jamaica through expansion globally earned him the esteemed title.

Over the past two decades, Scott has steered the Musson Group’s evolution from a modest Jamaican consumer wholesale distributor to a formidable conglomerate operating across 30 countries. Through that time, Scott has identified and capitalised on opportunities across diverse sectors, attracting and developing local talent.

As winner of the Master category, Scott will represent Jamaica at the World EOY, to be held in Monaco in June.

When asked about receiving the award, he said: “Well, it’s very nice to be recognised. It’s an honour to be a part of something that’s global. It’s going to be incredible to meet other winners, and I’m just very thankful that I could be awarded an award for something I enjoy doing. It’s very kind of them.”
