Greenlight ranked for second year running in Deloitte Fast 50
London, 22 October, 2009 - Independent search marketing agency Greenlight has been named as one of the UK's fastest growing companies in the 2009 Deloitte Technology Fast 50. This is the second year in a row that Greenlight has won this award.
The prestigious league table ranks the UK's 50 fastest growing technology firms by their growth in revenue over the last 5 years. Greenlight's growth of 680% reflects the agency's continued expansion and success within the industry.
Greenlight works with over 50 leading UK and international brands, providing specialist SEO (search engine optimization) and PPC (Pay Per Click) services, for the likes of ghd, British Gas, Vodafone, Alliance & Leicester, Monarch Airlines or Radisson Edwardian Hotels.
Greenlight's rapid growth has been fuelled largely by the rapid growth of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), the popularity of search as a medium and by the development of the agency's proprietary technologies. These include paid search tools Quant™ and Adapt™. Quant intuitively optimises bids amongst vast portfolios of keywords whilst Adapt works with client inventories and stock levels to ensure that PPC adverts created for display in search engines are always 100% accurate in terms of product specs, pricing and availability. Greenlight has also developed SearchSentry™, a platform that helps companies protect their brands online.
Warren Cowan, CEO and founder of Greenlight said: "We were thrilled last year when we ranked in the Deloitte Fast 50 for the first time and to be ranked for a second time is a real reward to our hard work and I am very excited for Greenlight to be included. 2009 has been a fantastic year for Greenlight, with the company growing at an extraordinary rate. It's always great to have the agency's hard work recognized in this way."
This award follows Greenlight's inclusion in The Sunday Times Tech Track 100 in September 2009, where the agency was ranked 14th out of the 100 fastest growing technology firms and therefore the fastest growing digital marketing agency in Britain.
