LDC have joined forces with The Telegraph newspaper to identify the Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders. Due to the success and commitment of Dave Wright, he has been named as one of these leaders. Dave not only has grown Myzone but is a true entrepreneur running his own chain of health clubs, being Chair of the Suppliers Council for UkActive, owning another successful company Creative Fitness Marketing as well as being a father and family man.
Dave Wright says “Any personal kudos regarding the success of a company is always flattering, but it is categorically impossible without a phenomenal team to realize that growth. I'm fortunate that I have an unbelievable global team that has stood by the Myzone cause of genuinely making a difference to someone's health. This, against all the adversity of a self-funded startup, is far more inspiring to me than any one individual accolade".
David Bains, Investment Director from LDC says “To build a global wearable company in under seven years is an incredible achievement. The fact that Dave has done it with no external funding, while consistently making a profit, is a testament to his entrepreneurial prowess. He has some ambitious goals for the business, and has the strategies and passion to make it happen. We have the feeling that Myzone is just getting started and we can’t wait to see where the business goes from here”.
