PJ Farr named One To Watch in The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders programme

PJ Farr, Managing Director of UK Connect has been named as a One To Watch in The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders programme for 2022.


The programme, which is supported by The Times and now in its fifth year, celebrates those entrepreneurs that are growing 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 Ones to Watch are the business leaders destined for great things. Those who are making waves in their sectors, having a positive impact on their customers and employees, and who are the driving force behind tomorrow’s most successful medium-sized firms.

UK Connect is a UK leading I.T. Managed Service Provider (MSP), supporting customers with expertise in critical onsite I.T., connectivity and communication services. UK Connect’s I.T. solutions have transformed the construction industry since their inception in 2013, enabling housebuilders to improve the way they communicate, collaborate and work. Now, the company is expanding its operations across a broad range of sectors – from Defence to the Energy industries and is driving growth in every corner of the UK.

It’s an honour to be included on the One To Watch list in The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders programme alongside so many other incredible and inspirational business leaders. While myself and the rest of the Senior Leadership Team are constantly aiming to build upon past achievements and move the business forward, my inclusion in this group is a huge testament to the amazing team we have at UK Connect. They are the driving force behind our growth, innovation and success with our primary focus always on the customer and how we can solve their I.T. challenges.
