Surrey Super Growth Awards 2016 - fastest growing companies in Surrey announced

Surrey Super GrowthThe inaugural Surrey Super Growth Awards took place on Friday, 1 July 2016 at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge. Over 100 people attended the breakfast event, including representatives from 34 short-listed finalists, to find out which companies were the fastest growing across the region.

Surrey Super Growth is a collaboration between asb law, Lloyds Bank and RSM. It is different from traditional business awards in that the finalists don’t apply to participate as the work is already done in their financial reports filed at Companies House. The turnover growth of companies is assessed over a three-year accounting period against the Surrey Super Growth criteria to produce a finalist list.

 

Dr Malcolm Parry OBE, Managing Director and CEO of The Surrey Research Park, announced the Surrey Super Growth 2016 winner as Guildford-based The Gym Group, with an outstanding growth rate of 241%. The company opened its first Gym in 2008 and now operates from 78 sites in major towns and cities across the UK and is on-track to open a further 15-20 gyms in 2016.

Having launched in 2007, we have taken The Gym Group forward through continued investment and strong financial backing. We’re now looking forward to building on our success and deliver our award-winning service to even more of the UK population.”
