The Ward Hadaway North East Fastest 50 Awards were launched in 1998 with The Journal to celebrate the region's fastest-growing, privately-owned companies.
Each year we objectively compile a list of the region’s Top 50 fastest growing businesses. These organisations are the lifeblood of the economy and the Fastest 50 provides the perfect opportunity to recognise the North East’s key players in business and celebrate them on a wider scale.
The Fastest 50 champions regional companies, highlighting success and innovation, to inspire those who work in business.
This October, the Fastest 50 list will be published and we will announce the ultimate winners – the North East’s Fastest growing business for 2021.
