Northern Tech Awards

Aspire in Northern Tech Awards Top Ten

Aspire has had its remarkable growth rate recognised in a second prestigious league table.

The company made its first appearance in The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 last September, the annual league table which ranks the UK’s leading private technology companies by looking at the fastest growing sales performances over the last three years.

Now Aspire has added to that honour by being named as one of the region’s top ten fastest growing IT companies in The Northern Tech Awards.

The awards have been organised by leading international technology investment bank GP Bullhound since 2011. This year’s awards night was held in Leeds and attended by CEOs, entrepreneurs and business leaders in the digital economy. The Northern Tech Awards provide a platform to celebrate the innovative technologies and businesses developed in the region, and recognise those who have contributed to their success.

The awards categories were the Top 50 Fastest Growing Technology Companies and the Region’s Rising Stars, aimed at smaller and emerging regional technology companies.

Judges included Chris Allen, co-founder of Laterooms.com and Charles Sharland, chairman and co-founder of AppSense.

Aspire was voted as the ninth fastest growing IT company in the region. Companies were ranked by revenue growth over the last three years, with Aspire’s rate of growth being 139% between 2012 and 2014.

Nigel Begg, Managing Director, at Aspire said:

“We’re delighted to have been recognised in such prestigious awards. We’re a young, ambitious, energetic company that is always striving to deliver for our customers.

“Recognition in such awards is vindication of our strategy of putting our clients’ needs above everything else. It is this customer-focused approach that has led to our turnover increasing year on year and to our high level of repeat business and customer recommendations.”

Aspire has key sites in the North East and London and last year the company recorded an increase in turnover of almost 60 per cent, and predicted further growth of at least 30 per cent for the current financial year.
