Following on from when All Things Business met with Alex Goldsmith in December 2017, the CEO of Northampton based Medigold Health, has recently been named in the ‘Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders’, which shines a light on the inspiring leaders running the UK’s most successful medium sized businesses.

Recognised as the ‘unsung heroes of the British economy,’ the individuals featured in the list demonstrate ambition, diversity and dynamism, and we are delighted to announce that our very own CEO Alex Goldsmith, has been named as one of the Top 50.

Applauded for his track record of delivering exceptional business results and sound investment decisions, Alex consistently demonstrates the drive and determination to succeed whilst building a business where his people feel truly valued.

Alex said of his achievement;

“I am proud to be named in LDC’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders. It must be said however that this accolade is as much a reflection of the team and people behind me as it is a personal achievement. I believe this represents recognition of the hard work and dedication shown by all within Medigold Health and shows how our people have followed the vision I have outlined for the growth of our business.”

Craig Hinde of LDC also commented on Alex’s inspiring journey;

“Alex was suddenly parachuted into the family business from an entirely different career, learning fast to help his father during a difficult time. He rose to the challenge, and found he had a natural flair for entrepreneurship, taking calculated risks that have helped Medigold Health build an unrivalled reputation in employee wellness. Revenues have grown under his leadership, yet he never rests on his laurels, investing consistently in R&D. A true leader and innovator, Medigold Health will surely stay ahead of the pack over the coming years.”

Alex joined his father’s business Medigold Health in 2006, leaving his career in the City to become business development director. And he’s certainly developed the business since. The employee wellness provider is now an industry pioneer. He invests 5-10pc of turnover in R&D each year to stay at the forefront of occupational health, moving beyond the usual absence management, physio and mental health support, to also run a fleet of mobile vans testing hearing, lung function and more.

Alex’s story features in the first instalment of the Top 50 series, entitled ‘Thinking Big’, read the full story here:
