Congrats to Steve Pailthorpe for being listed in the Global 100!

I’m thrilled to announce that Iconic Digital’s CEO, Steve Pailthorpe, has been listed in the Global 100 list for ‘Most Influential CEO of the Year 2023′. It’s an incredible achievement and recognition of his leadership, vision, and dedication to shaping the future of digital marketing and technology.

The fact that you’re here in the Learning Centre reading this article, means you already know about our agency. Our mission is to “Transform lives through business growth”. Steve has pioneered this vision over the last 10 years. More importantly, together the team here has developed our “Ideas Factory” which has produced some of the web’s leading brand names. Likened to the Facebook “hack-a-thon”, the Idea’s Factory meets each week to innovate within our sector, helping our customers grow and succeed in the digital age by providing cutting-edge strategies, tools, and services that deliver measurable results.

Under Steve’s guidance, Iconic Digital has grown from strength to strength, expanding our team, capabilities, and client base. He’s a true visionary who’s always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and inspiring us to excel in our work. Everyone who knows Steve, knows he is an entrepreneur, which means we can always expect a little chaos, however it is this structured chaos which pushes the boundaries, driving us forward to innovate.

Steve has a wealth of experience in the digital marketing industry, having worked with numerous clients across various sectors and niches. He knows what works and what doesn’t, and he’s always staying ahead of the curve by monitoring industry trends, innovations, and emerging technologies. Steve is also a great communicator and collaborator, always willing to listen to our team members’ ideas, feedback, and concerns. He fosters a culture of openness, transparency, and mutual respect, which makes Iconic Digital a great place to work and grow. Anyone who has met Steve, will also know he is strategic thinker who can see the big picture and break it down into actionable steps. He’s not afraid to take risks and try new things, but he’s also mindful of the potential pitfalls and challenges. He balances innovation with prudence, which is crucial in a fast-changing and competitive industry like digital marketing.

Perhaps the reason for this award is more to do with Steve’s passion for transformation. At Iconic Digital, we share a unique charity motivator which sets us apart by giving 30% of our profits to good causes. Steve and our Board are super passionate about this! Steve is a passionate advocate of ethical and sustainable business practices. He believes that businesses have a responsibility to serve society, not just their shareholders, and that digital marketing can be a force for good if done right. He’s committed to fostering a culture of social responsibility and environmental stewardship within Iconic Digital and our clients.

Huge congrats to Steve on this amazing achievement. Steve, you’re a great leader who shines with generosity and leads by example. I’m honoured to work for a company led by such an influential CEO.  This well-deserved recognition will be celebrated by your team. Thank you for inspiring us to be our best selves every day.
