Byron Dixon OBE named among UK’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2022 

Byron Dixon OBE, CEO of Micro-Fresh® has been named as one of The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2022. 
The programme, which is supported by The Times and now in its fifth year, celebrates the inspiring leaders behind some of the UK’s most successful and fast-growing medium-sized firms. 
A record number of nominations – more than 750 – were received this year, proving that ambition is alive and well despite the challenges faced by increasing economic uncertainty. 
The business leaders featured in The Top 50 demonstrate resilience, strategic excellence and export success. They operate across a broad range of sectors and are driving growth in every corner of the UK – from Edinburgh to Brighton, and Bath to Norfolk. Collectively, they employ almost 9,500 people and turn over more than £1.2 billion. 
Byron developed the Micro-Fresh® formula in 2006 after his work at ICI leather finishings and ECCO footwear. It began as an invisible treatment used to prevent mould growth on leather goods, 15 years later; Micro-Fresh® has become a global brand used by over 50 retailers in their products. The team strive to crack the US market and grow to be the GORE-TEX of freshness. 
Byron Dixon OBE, CEO of Micro-Fresh® said: I’m humbled to be recognised by such a well-respected financial institution, Lloyds Bank, as one of the top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders in the UK 2022. We have worked tirelessly over the last few years to push our brand to mean wellness for across the globe and thanks to Lloyds for this honour. 
John Garner, Managing Partner, LDC, added: “The volume and quality of submissions this year surpassed all of our expectations. We’ve been struck by the way business leaders have overcome challenges and adversity to run fast-growing and successful companies, proving that difficult circumstances can become the biggest driver of ambition. There are so many fascinating stories behind each and every business leader in this year’s Top 50 and I’d like to congratulate all of those featured. We look forward to seeing where they go next!”
