ES Broadcast named as one of Britains top growth businesses in Sunday Times Fast Track 100

06/12/2018

ES Broadcast has been ranked at number 72 in the 2018 Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100. The annually published league table is billed as the definitive list of Britain's private companies with the fastest-growing sales.

Inclusion in the shortlist recognises the remarkable year-on-year growth ES Broadcast has achieved. Over the last three years, the company's sales have seen an annual rise of 55.10%. Financial results in the year to June 2018 showed sales of 21.4m.

The company was one of only six media businesses to make the top 100, which featured companies from sectors as diverse as food and drink, transport, healthcare, consumer goods and business services. Prominent names including craft beer brewers BrewDog, Beavertown Brewery and Brewhouse & Kitchen, restaurant chains Mowgli, Giggling Squid, Five Guys and Flat Iron, retail leisure developer Boxpark and sporting events promoter Matchroom Sport all made the final rankings.

Significant increase in sales and opening of systems integration division drive success

Under the stewardship of managing director Ben Murphy, who joined the business in July 2016, ES Broadcast's equipment sales operation has seen significant growth, while the company also expanded its service offering with the establishment of a dedicated systems integration division in September 2017. The division has already delivered a number of projects for clients including Creative Technology, The Hospital Club Studios, Telegenic and RaceTech.

The number of staff employed by ES Broadcast in the last three years has also grown threefold, with recent recruitment bringing the current headcount to 36.

Fast Track 100 achievement a stepping stone to further success

We are extremely proud of our achievement in being included in the Fast Track 100, said Edward Saunders, ES Broadcast CEO and founder. It acknowledges the vision and dedication of the senior management team, the hard work of all our staff, and the mutually beneficial, long-term relationships of trust we have built with our clients.

With our new systems integration division already exceeding expectations in both financial performance and the high-profile nature of the business it is winning, we are confident that being included in the Fast Track 100 is a stepping stone to further success.

Acknowledging the dynamic leadership underpinning the companies that made the final list, Richard Branson, founder of Fast Track 100 sponsor Virgin Group, wrote: Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of UK business. In a climate of uncertainty, it's important to recognise those who challenge the norm, chase improvements and drive innovation.

Tony Walsh of Barclays, which is also a sponsor of the Fast Track 100, wrote: All of this year's Fast Track 100 companies have shown a willingness to take risks and an ethic of hard work that is to be admired. I congratulate them on their success and for having the courage of their convictions.
