Foregenix takes it's place in the Fast Growth 50


,02/02/18 10:07

The last three years have been fantastic for us at Foregenix - we have officially quadrupled our team and the end of 2017 saw us open a new office in Brazil, making us a truly global cyber security business with service centres in each region.  Following the growth we've experienced, we are very pleased to announce that we’ve been identified as one of the Top 50 Fast Growth businesses in the South West of the UK.

Our focus is - and always has been - to provide a consistently high quality service to our clients globally.  This has driven our services and products to develop and scale to continue providing the high level of service our clients expect.   The growth in the business is a reflection of our client support - for which we are very grateful - and the high quality of service we provide.  From time to time, there is some recognition in the form of "making it" onto one of the industry's benchmarks -  the South West Fast Growth 50 is one of those focused, yet important awards highlighting the 50 fastest growing companies in the South West of the UK. 

We’re always humbled by any sort of media attention, and as a growing business, recognition means a lot to us. Gavin Thompson, Editor of Western Daily Press extended his compliments:

Congratulations! Making this list as one of the fastest growing companies in the South West is an outstanding achievement, giving you an opportunity to showcase your business among the most elite in the South West.”

Alongside this accolade, we’ve also been shortlisted as a finalist for the award of Technology & Innovation. It certainly has been an exciting start to 2018.

The award ceremony is a black-tie event located at Ashton Gate, Bristol, UK. The event is being hosted by none other than Nick Hewer, best known as Sir Alan Sugar’s advisor on The Apprentice, as well as being the presenter of Countdown.

Gavin Thompson tells the Bristol Post:
“As a region we have so much to celebrate. We have some remarkable long-established businesses which are mainstays of our economy and major employers.

“But it’s the fast-growing companies today which will become those powerhouses of tomorrow. These companies are innovating and scaling up, and their success is vital to the prosperity of the region.

“So we plan to celebrate them in the South West Fast Growth 50, and by sharing their stories I hope we also help other businesses to emulate their success. Being in the South West Fast Growth 50 will be a badge of honour for those who make it.”

We certainly believe it’s a badge of honour and we will be celebrating the achievement. The full list of all 50 companies will be published on Thursday 15th March 2018 in the Western Daily Press, Bristol Post and Western Morning News.
