Top 50 LDC

David Bentley our founder and CEO has been named among UK’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders

David who set up Solutionize Global 11 years ago has been recognised as one of LDC’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2020.

Now in its third year, the programme, which is supported by The Telegraph, celebrates the inspiring leaders behind some of the UK’s most successful and fast-growing medium-sized firms.

There were more than 350 nominations and those profiled hail from every corner of the country, operate across a multitude of industries, employ more than 5,250 people and collectively contribute more than £1bn to the UK economy.

David commented: ” I am delighted and humbled to be recognised in this prestigious list of company leaders. This year has without a doubt been a challenge and with the ongoing pandemic situation, the team and I have certainly had to dig deep and work even harder than ever to keep the business on track to ensure we are delivering all our customers need and more. Never have we felt those relationships are stronger as we all pull together.

Without those customers, suppliers and my team, especially my co-director Alex Wilkinson I wouldn’t be where I am, so I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their continued support.”

John Garner of LDC added: “The UK has a long-standing reputation for its entrepreneurial endeavour, but there has never been a more important time to recognise or back ambition in British business. The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders aims to do just that. All of the inspiring leaders featured in our Top 50 this year have driven their business forward during a period of adversity, whether by expanding internationally, delivering real innovation, showcasing resilience or making a difference in their communities. They all deserve their place and I look forward to seeing their continued success.”

LDC is the UK’s leading mid-market private equity firm. Backed by Lloyds Banking Group, LDC is committed to investing £1.2bn over the next three years to support the ambitions of management teams leading mid-market businesses across the UK.
