The project, this year sponsored by Salesforce, aims to dispel myths surrounding manufacturing and create a platform to champion and publicly identify dynamic leaders and innovators in the sector.

This year’s TM Top 100 comprises incredible candidates hailing from all over the country, from a range of sectors and occupy varying roles in manufacturing.

Names that made the list as exemplary figures included Davinder Bains, managing director, Magal Cables; Mary Brady, vice president and general manager, Coty; Jordan Daykin, managing director, Gripit Fixings; and Carl Perrin, director, AME; and Ewan Lloyd-Baker, chief executive, Hayward Tyler Group.
