Sunday Times Tech Track 100

Aspire in the city to collect national award

Aspire has picked up an award celebrating their debut in a prestigious league table of business success.

Aspire was the only new entry from the region in The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100, and senior executives travelled to London for an awards dinner at Vinopolis.

The league table, which is published annually, ranks Britain’s top 100 private technology companies by looking at the fastest growing sales performances over the last three years.

Michael Errington, Sales Director at Aspire, said: “We were placed 72nd in the league table which is a fantastic achievement for us and really reflects how quickly we have grown over the last few years.

“The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 is very competitive on a national level so it’s great for the region that a north east company has entered such a well-regarded league table.”

Sales Manager Stephen McNickle added: “The award and position on the league table clearly demonstrate how quickly we have grown since Aspire was established eight years ago.

“We’ve achieved year-on-year growth, recruited the most knowledgeable and skilled technologists in the region and have delivered significant cost savings for clients as well as providing dedicated service, support and outstanding technical delivery.”

Guest speakers at the awards dinner were Jay Bregman, co-founder and former CEO of taxi booking app developer Hailo and Sir William Sargent, co-founder and CEO of Framestore, the visual effects company that won an Oscar for its ground-breaking work on the space epic Gravity. The awards dinner honoured companies on the latest league table, who each received a framed certificate.

Aspire offer clients hosted services, data centre solutions and communications as well as traditional IT support and have customers throughout the UK and Europe including the Labour Party, utilities contractor McNicholas and Barbour.
