Surrey Super Growth launches to recognise the county’s fastest growing companies
We have teamed up with Lloyds Bank and accountancy firm, RSM to create Surrey Super Growth – a definitive listing of the county’s best performing companies.
With rigorous criteria for companies with more than a £2 million turnover, and achieving sustained growth over the past 3 years, Surrey Super Growth is all about celebrating wealth-creating, job-generating success.
Despite the fragile feel to the latest economic growth figures for the UK, there are many companies out there achieving remarkable sustained growth, creating jobs and helping rebuild the national economy. Surrey Super Growth gives these businesses the recognition they deserve and the opportunity to join other businesses in celebrating their success.
Russell Bell, Senior Partner, at asb law, explained: “Ask any business leader what underpins their medium to long-term strategy and the answer is usually focused on profitable, sustainable growth. But achieving and sustaining that growth is not easy, particularly in a sluggish economic environment. That is why we are passionate about launching the Surrey Super Growth awards to recognise the businesses that are doing exactly that.”
The Surrey Super Growth team is busy analysing financial information filed at Companies House and creating an index of the 60 fastest growing businesses across the region. David McCulloch, Partner, at RSM, explained: “We’ll shortly be contacting all the Surrey-based companies that are finalists. Surrey Super Growth is a great opportunity for them to celebrate success, increase brand exposure and attract the best talent. All of this with no cost and minimal effort.”
The Surrey region is a significant and growing contributor to the national economy with sector strengths in manufacturing, advanced engineering, digital technologies, professional services and pharmaceuticals. Over 60,000 active businesses contribute to a regional economy worth over £30 billion, employing more than half a million people. Russell Harvey, Mid-Markets Area Director, at Lloyds Commercial Banking, commented: “Despite the economic challenges, it is great to see so many Surrey-based companies across all sectors achieving strong profitable growth. The launch of Surrey Super Growth provides a great opportunity to recognise and celebrate the success of these businesses and their talented management teams.”
The Surrey Super Growth analysis is currently underway and shortlisted finalists will be contacted soon. The winners will be announced at a special awards breakfast taking place at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge on Friday, 1st July 2016.
