Europe’s largest independent digital marketing agency made the list of major winners in the Deloitte Fast 50 2009 following another successful year of exponential expansion. Recording a growth rate of 4111% over the past five years, the company’s top ten listing was cited by the judging panel as evidence of the online sector’s growing influence.
“Trading conditions this year have been challenging to say the least, but the digital marketing sector’s increasing maturity and size has enabled us to pursue an ambitious growth strategy despite the economic situation. Cost-effectiveness and measurable ROI lie at the heart of what we do, and even in the most difficult of times these qualities make for a compelling business argument,” said Lyndsay Menzies, Group Chief Operations Officer at bigmouthmedia.
“We’re delighted to have been ranked so highly and are obviously happy that bigmouthmedia’s continued success across the group has been recognised. It’s a great boost for the entire team and underlines what a talented group of people we have here.”
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50, one of the UK’s foremost technology award programmes, is a ranking of the country’s fastest-growing technology companies based on percentage growth over five years. Now in its 12th year, the programme honours business growth, technological innovation and UK entrepreneurial spirit.
David Halstead, Partner TMT practice and Fast 50 Chairman, Deloitte said: “The large number of software and digital marketing companies in the 2008 Deloitte Fast 50 reflects the growing maturity of online enterprises. The web is approaching the next stage of its evolution, and successful business models are becoming entrenched.”
