UK’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2022
LONDON UK, 6 October 2022: Sally Laycock, UK CEO of digital marketing company Incubeta has been named as one of The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2022.
The programme, which is supported by The Times and now in its fifth year, celebrates the inspiring leaders behind some of the UK’s most successful and fast-growing medium-sized firms.
A record number of nominations – more than 750 – were received this year, proving that ambition is alive and well despite the challenges faced by increasing economic uncertainty.
The business leaders featured in The Top 50 demonstrate resilience, strategic excellence and export success. They operate across a broad range of sectors and are driving growth in every corner of the UK – from Edinburgh to Brighton, and Bath to Norfolk. Collectively, they employ almost 9,500 people and turn over more than £1.2 billion.
Incubeta is a team of over 700 creators, thinkers, makers, and doers working across 22 offices globally to unlock business growth for clients including Google, Hyundai, Netflix, HBO and L’Oréal. Sally has been at Incubeta for almost fifteen years and CEO of the digital marketing specialists for almost two of those years. Incubeta combines capabilities across the full spectrum of digital disciplines to deliver standout outcomes at every brand touchpoint, from awareness to fulfilment.
Sally Laycock, UK CEO of Incubeta said: “It’s a huge honour to be included among the other 50 leaders on this list.
“The stereotype of the brash and aggressive CEO has characterised businesses for much of my career. During my two years as CEO, I’ve aimed to show that kindness, approachability, and consideration are still qualities that take you to the top of a successful company.
“As most of the leaders on this list will attest, I wouldn’t be here without the dedicated and inspirational team I work with every day. Nurturing talent from all walks of life has been a key goal in my journey as CEO, and Incubeta wouldn’t be the success it is without them.”
John Garner, Managing Partner, LDC, added: “The volume and quality of submissions this year surpassed all of our expectations. We’ve been struck by the way business leaders have overcome challenges and adversity to run fast-growing and successful companies, proving that difficult circumstances can become the biggest driver of ambition. There are so many fascinating stories behind each and every business leader in this year’s Top 50 and I’d like to congratulate all of those featured. We look forward to seeing where they go next!”
