Steve Lanigan is the CEO of ALS People, a leading recruitment firm specialising in the UK-wide recycling, warehousing, distribution and manufacturing sectors. He led the management buyout of the company in 2018, four years after it was first established, with the help of an equity and loan investment from the Development Bank of Wales. ALS People has grown from approximately a £13 million run rate in 2018 to £55 million in 2021. Steve has since bought back the 20% stake taken by the Development Bank. He was a finalist in the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards in 2018, and in the same year ALS People won the Wales Fast Growth 50 award, with a growth of 4237% between 2015 and 2017.
