A NORTH EAST chief executive has been named as one of the top 50 business leaders in the UK.

Josh Gill, CEO of The Everflow Group, which is based in Stockton, has been chosen as one of the most ambitious business leaders for 2021 in a list produced by LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Bank, in partnership with The Times.

Josh set up The Everflow Group, which is comprised of water retailer Everflow Water and software developer Everflow Tech, in 2015 and since then has seen it become the fastest-growing water retailer in the UK.

He said: “In 2015, my ambition was to make water simple for business customers. To have grown to where we are in such a short time is testament to the whole team’s vision and hard work, so winning an award like this recognises everyone’s ambition.”

The award is the latest in a series of wins for the company over the past year, as well as being named third in the FT1000, the Financial Times’ 2020 list of Europe’s top 1,000 growing businesses.

It has been shortlisted in no fewer than 26 awards, winning, among others, a UK Business Award for best customer experience, a Tees Tech Award for Innovation and a Best Companies 'Great Place to Work' award.
