Citynet recognised in ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ 2018 report

Citynet has featured in the prestigious new London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

The fifth annual edition of this report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SME’s) across the UK and for Citynet to be selected is a real honour and testament to our hard work over the past five years.

As well as identifying 1,000 companies, the annual reports examine in detail the opportunities and challenges facing SMEs and looks at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of the British and European economies.

According to the report, Financial Services is one of the fastest growing sectors with an average annual revenue growth rate of more than 461%, followed by Engineering and Construction at 109%.

To be shortlisted, Citynet needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming our industry peers.
