Derby firm makes Fast 50 top five
A Derby marketing company has been ranked fifth in Deloitte's UK Technology Fast 50. It was the only East Midlands company to make the list with a growth of almost 4,000 per cent.
BriefYourMarket.com was formed six years ago and offers companies an all-in-one marketing platform on which they can send a range of newsletters, marketing e mails, text messages and customer surveys.
It experienced a 3,821 per cent growth in 2013/14 and is focusing on expanding internationally from its base three-miles outside of Derby city centre.
Co-founder and chief executive Rick Palmer said: "We are primarily UK-focused, but we’re gradually increasing our number of overseas customers in countries such as South Africa, Hong Kong and Dubai.
"We’re also taking steps to address and manage growth internally in terms of our culture and leadership. We’ve seen how businesses can reach a certain size and then stagnate, so we’re looking at various initiatives to sustain our growth whilst maintaining our culture of creativity and fun."
Other Midlands companies in the list include internet company Majestic and software businesses sales-i and Click Travel. The groups were ranked 17, 38 and 49 respectively.
