LDC coming on board was an important transition for the company and the management team has delivered over and above what we hoped for. We continue to see exponential growth as a business, with some of our highest sales figures to date already seen this year.”
The judges were looking for companies who are building attractive, distinctive businesses which stand out from others in their sector, skilled execution of particular projects, including product innovation, acquisition, capital investment, international expansion, marketing innovation. Evidence of bold and authentic leadership, including development of a strong, progressive culture and wider contribution to society as well as overall growth, including profit growth and returns on exit.
