15 October 2020 3 min read

LDC Top 50

Steve Arnold, CEO of Edays, the absence intelligence company named among UK’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders 

Steve Arnold, CEO of Edays has been named as one of LDC’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2020.

Now in its third year, the programme, which is supported by The Telegraph, celebrates the inspiring leaders behind some of the UK’s most successful and fast-growing medium-sized firms.

There were more than 350 nominations and those profiled hail from every corner of the country, operate across a multitude of industries, employ more than 5,250 people, and collectively contribute more than £1bn to the UK economy.

Steve is the CEO of Edays, the global absence management platform which provides mid-market and large-scale companies with an effective answer to complex requirements. Having studied Law and Marketing before completing an MBA at Warwick Business School, Steve moved into the complex and rapidly developing world of absence management space in 2008. 

Steve Arnold, CEO of Edays commented: “I am delighted to have been included in this year’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders by the LDC. At Edays, we are immensely proud of the hard work and dedication our team has put in during what has been a challenging year. COVID-19 is still presenting significant problems to all business sectors, and our aim is to continue providing a solution that allows businesses and employees transparency over matters of absence and leave and to proactively use this data to help leaders make more informed decisions. We are all ambitious here at Edays and we look forward to continuing our growth into the new year.

John Garner of LDC added: “The UK has a long-standing reputation for its entrepreneurial endeavor, but there has never been more important time to recognise or back ambition in British business. The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders aims to do just that. All of the inspiring leaders featured in our Top 50 this year have driven their business forward during a period of adversity, whether by expanding internationally, delivering real innovation, showcasing resilience, or making a difference in their communities. They all deserve their place and I look forward to seeing their continued success.”

LDC is the UK’s leading mid-market private equity firm. Backed by Lloyds Banking Group, LDC is committed to investing £1.2bn over the next three years to support the ambitions of management teams leading mid-market businesses across the UK.
