2016 has been a fantastic year of growth for us here at Spearline, and it’s made even better when our hard work is being recognised by leaders within the industry.
We were absolutely delighted to have ranked 287th in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA awards last week in Paris! The awards, now in their sixteenth year, recognise technology companies that have achieved the fastest rates of revenue growth during the past four years. The awards span 28 countries and reward companies that have demonstrated cutting edge business strategies, vision and solid management. We were thrilled to be listed amongst these trailblazing companies in the EMEA market.
This success follows on from last month, when we secured 8th place in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the fifty fastest growing technology companies in Ireland. The awards celebrate the contribution of indigenous companies to the technology sector in Ireland, and the overall economy. We were also very proud to have won the 2016 Deloitte Impact Award in association with PayPal, for the company that has made the most significant impact within the current year. Speaking at the awards ceremony in Dublin, our CEO Kevin Buckley said the award “is a credit to how much work we have achieved in the past twelve months at Spearline”.
Our dynamism and growth have been acknowledged elsewhere in 2016: In October we won the One to Watch Award category sponsored by KPMG at the it@cork Leader’s Awards. The award recognises a Cork company that is on the cusp of a major leap forward in their business. The it@cork Leader’s Awards is an annual event recognising the leading companies in Cork’s IT community. From global multinationals to small start-ups, the awards honour those who have gone further than most in the use of technology in their respective organisations and businesses.
We are very proud to see Spearline's commitment to innovation recognised by our industry peers and we would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support. We look forward to continued growth and success in 2017.
