Michael Gietzen, managing director of Identity and James Tucker, CEO of GovNet, have been included on LDC’s Top 50 List 2021.
Gietzen (pictured left) has been named as one of the LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2021 and Tucker (pictured right) has been named as one of this year’s Ones To Watch.
The programme is now in its fourth year and celebrates the inspiring leaders behind some of the UK’s most successful and fast-growing medium-sized firms.
Tucker said: “I am incredibly proud to have been recognised by such an esteemed panel of judges for the substantial progress we have made as a business, during what has been the most challenging period to date for the events sector.
“When I arrived at GovNet, my goal was to ensure our talented team had the very best tools at their disposal to maximise the impact of our events upon the communities we serve. With the support of every one of my colleagues at GovNet, we continue to make great strides in this area – and I thank them for that.”
Gietzen commented: “Last year, I was fortunate enough to be selected as 'One to Watch' in the LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders programme. I feel extremely honoured that this year I have been selected as one of the Top 50! 2021 has been an incredible year for Identity.
"We have delivered some of our biggest events yet, including the G7 Summit and COP26, and I am proud to be at the helm of Identity at such an exciting period in the agency’s growth.”
John Garner, head of new business, LDC, 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 many have achieved some truly remarkable things.
“Congratulations to all those feature and we look forward to seeing their continued success and impact, and contribution the broader UK economy.”
