Meet The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders 2020
Meet our first ten ambitious business leaders. From the founder of a collagen drink looking to grow her business internationally, to the CEO of a company harnessing the power of light to measure climate change gasses from space, to the leader of one of the UK’s fastest growing creative communications agencies. Each of them prove that the pandemic hasn’t curbed the ambition of the UK mid-market.
Meet our second group of ambitious business leaders. From the founder of a body positive and inclusive tights manufacturer, to a cobbler who has made sustainable shoes with the same range of movement as if the wearer were barefoot, to an engineer who has developed uninterruptable power systems. These leaders continue to adapt and evolve their companies in changing times.
Meet the third group of ten ambitious business leaders. These include a street food seller revolutionising lunch with burritos, samosas and naansters, an entrepreneur looking to bring IT support services to every corner of the globe, and a former doctor helping people get the long-term support they need. These leaders are excelling in their fields and continue to go for growth no matter the economic backdrop.
Meet this week’s ten ambitious business leaders, taking considered risks and following their gut instinct. They are behind businesses that are solving the world’s biggest problems, innovating with technology to create new virtual services or expanding their high-end consumer brand internationally.
Meet our final ten ambitious business leaders of 2020. They are building resilient innovative firms and driving the UK economy through difficult times. From the founder of a disruptive healthy snack brand to the leader of a distance learning business offering more than 650 courses, to an entrepreneur who has turned his passion for motorcycles into a successful business.
There can be only 50 Most Ambitious Leaders – but the sheer volume of exceptional entries this year means that we have an exciting and dynamic ‘Ones to Watch’ category. These are the leaders behind tomorrow’s mid-sized firms, growing innovative and resilient businesses that are making a big impact on their customers and target markets. These business leaders will be the nation’s principal job creators over the years to come, generating growth and prosperity for the British economy.
