Summit's CEO, Hedley Aylott, appears in the 2014 Prolific Northerners list


Hedley Aylott, CEO of Summit, was last week named in the Prolific North’s top 100 leading industry figures. The list is compiled by a judging panel of twelve cross-sector and pan-regional experts, and aims to identify movers and shakers in the media and creative industries based in the north. Also on the list were senior management from Google, presenters, directors and producers from The BBC and industry peers from Search Laboratory and TwentySix.
This is Hedley’s second accolade of 2014; he was nominated as a regional finalist in the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards back in April. He also appeared in the Drum’s digerati list last year, being recognised as one of the 100 key players setting the agenda across the digital marketing industries.

The Prolific North is a Manchester based publishing company, established in January 2013. The list took two months to compile, and used suggestions from readers along with independent research in order to pinpoint the most influential
figures for the judging panel to then whittle down to a final shortlist.


“It’s an honour to be included in this list of talented individuals who represent our region. I started my business in the north of England 14 years ago and Yorkshire remains our ‘spiritual’ home and HQ for Summit.” – Hedley Aylott, CEO, Summit
