Ward Hadaway announces Yorkshire’s Fastest 50 businesses for the 10th year running
18th February 2020
Ward Hadaway, in association with The Yorkshire Post, today reveals the region’s Fastest 50 growing companies.
The list, which highlights the success of Yorkshire’s privately-owned, profitable businesses, celebrates its first decade, a milestone in the history of the prestigious awards.
Awards are given to the best performing, fastest growing companies who have consistently increased turnover over a three year period. There are three different categories; small, medium and large businesses based on turnover.
Gareth Yates, a partner in Ward Hadaway’s Leeds office, said: “This year’s Fastest 50, which I’m delighted to reveal today, encapsulates an exciting, innovative region that’s home to hungry, hardworking companies who are eager to succeed.
“Manufacturing and engineering firms have performed particularly well with over a third of them appearing in the top 20. The region’s financial services sector has also had an extremely successful year; modernising and innovating a very traditional and highly regulated industry.
“Business services and technology sectors are another strong area of growth and it’s extremely encouraging to see a sizeable number of these companies in the Fastest 50.
“It’s clear Yorkshire businesses are resilient and determined to ensure they continue to progress and achieve, no matter what challenges they might face. The Fastest 50 are testament to Yorkshire’s thriving economy and each of the businesses listed deserve to be celebrated and recognised for their achievements.”
Gareth continues; “Yorkshire businesses are tenacious, astute and driven to deliver high quality services and products that ensure they achieve growth and, in turn, increase their bottom line. The awards highlight the strength of commercial business in the region and we’re looking forward to celebrating this success.”
The 2020 Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 has been compiled and verified using publicly available information from Companies House.
The awards ceremony takes place on Friday 20th March at Aspire in Leeds by invitation only and will be streamed live on LinkedIn.
