Impression recognised as One to Watch in The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2023

Congratulations to our co-founders, Tom Craig and Aaron Dicks, for being recognised and named Ones to Watch in The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders 2023.

Created by trusted investment partner LDC – part of Lloyds Banking Group, and supported by The Times, The LDC Top 50 champions the business leaders who are pushing for growth and building successful medium-sized businesses. 

This year, the competition was particularly high, with nominations showcasing the drive and determination that unites business leaders across the UK.

The leaders featured in The LDC Top 50 are growing their businesses at home and overseas, making a

positive contribution to society and driving progress against their sustainability goals. They hail from every corner of the UK and span every sector of the economy. Together, they employ more than 6,700 people and turn over more than £1.2bn.

The Ones to Watch are leaders making great strides and growing their businesses. They are excelling in their industries and making a positive impact on customers and employees, yet still show so much potential for future growth.

Tom Craig and Aaron Dicks, Co-Founders of Impression, said:

“We’re incredibly proud to have been selected for LDC’s Ones to Watch. It’s only right we share this accolade with the wider team, and our clients, which together contribute to making Impression the business it is today. We’d also like to say thank you to our leadership and management teams for supporting us in delivering on our vision and mission, and for helping foster a fantastic culture. We’re confident this is still just the start and Impression has a bright future.”

John Garner, Managing Partner at LDC, said:

“We started The LDC Top 50 six years ago to champion the remarkable success stories of medium-sized businesses, the unsung heroes of the British economy. Since then, we’ve received more than 3,000 nominations and celebrated more than 500 business leaders through the programme, surpassing all our expectations. The stories behind this year’s Ones to Watch really captured our attention and I’d like to congratulate them on their achievements so far. We’ve no doubt that this is only the beginning for each and every one of them!”
