Ally Maughan, Founder and Co-owner of People Puzzles 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.

People Puzzles provides trusted people experts to help businesses thrive. Comprising a team of over 80 of the UK’s most experienced HR Directors, People Puzzles enables SMEs to access the very top level of HR expertise in the UK without the financial risk of a full-time hire, effectively democratising access to top tier strategic people experts. Ally founded People Puzzles with a vision of enabling a truly flexible, supportive business model both for its client businesses and its own staff, a vision which is firmly upheld by every member of the rapidly expanding team.

Ally Maughan, Founder and Co-owner of People Puzzles, said, “Being recognised as part of the LDC Top 50 is a great privilege and a real testament to the importance of flexibility to people in business. People Puzzles was founded to be able to support business leaders with flexible resources to enable their businesses to thrive. We want people to have a good work-life balance and a rewarding career, but on their own flexible terms, which continues to be our guiding principle.”

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!”
