The programme, which is supported by The Times and now in its fourth year, celebrates the inspiring leaders behind some of the UK’s most successful and fast-growing medium-sized firms.
Despite the challenges of the last 18 months, the Top 50 received a record number of nominations; more than 600 proving that ambition is alive and well.
The featured Top 50 hail from every corner of the country and operate across a diverse range of sectors. Collectively, they employ more than 9,500 people and contribute more than £1.2bn to the UK economy.
Tom’s inclusion in the LCD Top 50 is testament to his hard work, foresight, passion and commitment to the renewables sector, positioning Taylor Hopkinson as a trusted partner to global renewables leaders and driving consistent business growth across existing and emerging markets worldwide.
2021 has been a successful year for the business. The business has grown revenues by 60% and EBITDA by 90% whilst increasing headcount 50%. In addition to this recent milestone, Taylor Hopkinson was awarded Recruiter of the Year 2021 and 2019/20 at the Wind Investment Awards, based on our deep industry knowledge, extensive network, commitment to diversity, and our honest and transparent approach to doing business.
And in July this year, the business was listed in the Recruiter Fast 50 as one of the fastest growing recruitment companies in the UK – the only dedicated renewables recruiter featured.
Tom Hopkinson said:
“I fell in love with the industry and the people and the intention to make the world a greener and better place. I want this to be the biggest renewable energy search and recruitment business in the world. All over the world, net zero commitments are becoming more ambitious and governments are pushing for a transition from fossil fuels to renewables, and we want to play our part in that transition.”
LDC’s John Garner added:
“The last 18 months have presented challenges that none of us could have foreseen, but despite everything, it’s fantastic to see that so many business leaders have achieved remarkable things. Through their resourcefulness and resilience, this year’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Leaders prove that the flame of ambition is hard to extinguish. Congratulations to all those featured and we look forward to seeing their continued success and impact, and contribution the broader UK economy.
