Airtime Rewards Co-Founders, Adam Ward and Josh Graham, win Trailblazer in FinTech Award

We’re excited to announce that our Co-Founders Adam Ward, CEO, and Josh Graham, CMO, have won the Trailblazer in FinTech Award as part of The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders programme for 2023.

The Trailblazer Awards recognise those business leaders who are disrupting their markets and shaking things up. Adam and Josh developed their own technology in the telecoms space and have experienced rapid growth with a small headcount. They have their sights set on being the leading loyalty programme for the mobile generation and have now signed up over 300 retailers to the Airtime Rewards app. Our three million members collectively save over £26m on their mobile bills.

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. 

Adam Ward, CEO,  and Josh Graham, CMO, commented on their award win: "We are delighted to have won this award as part of the LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders 2023. It is an honour to be recognised for this award, something we could not have done without the dedication from our team at Airtime Rewards, who continue to drive this business forward. We're both truly excited for what's next to come and look forward to showcasing new and exciting innovations to our platform."

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!”
