We’re delighted to announce that Adaptavist has been recognised as one of Deloitte’s Fast 50 for 2018 - at the number 5 in the highly competitive list. The company was ranked alongside tech and software-focused companies like Deliveroo, Checkout.com and Bloom & Wild at a ceremony in London last night. 

The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 programme has been established for over 20 years and exists to celebrate the achievements of the UK’s fastest growing technology companies. Competition is always intense, so it’s a real achievement for us to have been recognised in this way.  

The companies in the Fast 50 combined have revenues of £1.2bn and over 9,000 employees. The list is based on our revenue growth over the last four years – an impressive 4,024%. It is also a recognition of our continued growth, our international expansion and the value that our products, services and support have created for our customers.

“Even though we are in the process of closing the books on an eighth straight year of hypergrowth – i.e. over 40% year-on-year growth in our revenue – it still feels to me like we’re only at the beginning of the story,” says Simon Haighton-Williams, CEO of Adaptavist. “That said, having our growth recognised by Deloitte is another significant milestone in our journey. Everyone in the company should be deeply proud of the way our products, services and support help our clients improve and Adaptavist grow.”

Duncan Down, Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 Programme Lead said: "These businesses continue to explore new ways to find, contract and develop talent; and with a combined workforce of over 9,000 people are increasingly a voice to be listened to... Their enviable success should be recognised even more favourably in this time of macroeconomic and political uncertainty."

Launched in 1998, the Deloitte UK Fast 50 awards are all about growth driven by leading intellectual property and are a celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship. The UK Fast 50 is part of an international programme run by Deloitte. Qualifying entrants of the UK Fast 50 will be put forward to the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) programme, along with entrants from other national programmes run by Deloitte in the EMEA region.
