FT Longitude scores highly in the FT1000: Europe’s fastest-growing companies

James Watson

The FT Longitude team is proud to announce that it has been selected as one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies in the FT1000 – a ranking published by the Financial Times and Statista, charting the 1,000 companies in Europe that have achieved the highest percentage growth in revenues between 2012 and 2015.

Placed 408 of overall, FT Longitude also ranked 76 of 235 UK-based companies that made the grade, revealing that London has emerged as Europe’s capital for fast-growing companies. Innovative and fast-growing companies are the driving force of the European economy in the 21st century, generating jobs and sustaining Europe’s competitiveness, and we’re incredibly proud to be among best of them.

Commenting on the achievement, CEO Rob Mitchell said: “We are incredibly proud to be featured in the FT1000 in its inaugural year, especially following our recognition in the City A.M Leap 100 just 12 months ago. Since founding FT Longitude in 2011, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the investment made in thought leadership by B2B brands, and we believe our strong growth path reflects the growing demand for our expertise.”

Back in February, we shared news of our appointment of Alastair Gornall – previously chairman of Blue Rubicon and CEO of Reed Exhibitions – as non-executive chairman of FT Longitude, to help support our next phase of our growth. 2017 is set to be another very exciting for the FT Longitude team and we look forward to building on this success over the coming months.
