Startup Daily announced their Top 50 Emerging Leaders of 2015 and we are proud to announce that Gen George (CEO of OneShift) was ranked at the top of the list!
Several factors were considered for picking out the cream of the crop of emerging leaders, such as an individual’s influence in the particular industry, socially, internally within the business and the traction of the business. And of course, given the title, leadership was a main contender.
Leadership is so much more than financial turnover or capital raised in a business, it is about influence and engagement in the industry you work in and in the team you lead.
Startup Daily stated, “There are a particular group of people breaking down barriers and building sustainable businesses and organisations. These people will no doubt serve as inspiration for the next generation of dreamers, creators and business builders, and that is something to be truly proud of.”
Gen was alongside some very impressive candidates including Charlie Wood at Dropbox, Melanie Perkins at Canva and Richard Bell at The Entourage. You can see the whole list of emerging leaders at http://www.startupdaily.net/the-emerging-leaders-list-of-2015/
