United Kingdom – Barney Kent, CEO of Touch Medical Media Group Holdings Ltd has been named one of The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 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’s nominations were of an exceptionally high calibre and the competition was fierce, 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.
Barney Kent, with his two co-founders, Tim Sheldrick and Matt Goodwin, spotted an opportunity to create an open medical education network that leveraged digitalisation to serve high-quality and free content to meet the ever-changing learning habits of healthcare professionals around the globe. Disrupting the sector, they launched Touch Medical Media in 2012, its websites now attracting two million learners a year with revenues forecast to hit £22 million by 2025.
Barney Kent, CEO of Touch Medical Media Group Holdings Ltd said: “It is great to receive this recognition, but you are only as good as the team around you and I am very fortunate to be surrounded by world class professionals who I would like to dedicate this nomination to. With ambitious growth plans, we are now going head-to-head with the market leader and our next generation approach to delivering content is a game changer.”
John Garner, Managing Partner at LDC, added: “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. Every leader in this year’s cohort has a story as impressive as the next, and I’d like to congratulate them on their achievements so far. We can’t wait to see where they go from here!”
