Alex Wilkinson Named in 42 under 42

Insider Media have produced their annual list of Yorkshire’s most promising business leaders “the 42 under 42” and it features our Chief Operating Officer and deputy CEO  Alex Wilkinson.

Each year Insider profile, by region, the top 42 most ambitious entrepreneurs and business leaders. Those who should be on your professional radar.  Alex is named as a shining star to watch for the future.

Alex’s recognition by inclusion on the list this year comes after a rapid 2 year growth period at SG.  Turnover revenue has tripled year on year and staff levels have quadrupled. His responsibility for day to day operational success of the business has underpinned this growth, alongside landing some enviable clients and contracts.

Within the SG organisation Alex is recognised for his work ethic and commitment. He believes in empowering employees to try things and make a few mistakes along the way. His mantra of ‘being comfortable with being uncomfortable” has been especially pertinent during the challenges of the pandemic. Like many other businesses we have had to review our processes, be agile to an evolving landscape and support our team.

We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to the other leaders who are featured. You can find the list in Insider’s March edition with Alex on page 52:
