Belfast-based Flint Studios has been listed in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa) following a glittering ceremony in Paris.
The digital agency was the sole Northern Irish firm awarded a place on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ EMEA list, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in EMEA.
The listing caps an incredible year for the company which specialises in engaging user experience, systems integration and a focus on results based web solutions. Last month Flint Studios was ranked 13th as a Technology Fast 50 Ireland award winner.
Flint Studios Managing Director, Jeremy Biggerstaff, credits a commitment to ongoing investment in its team and core capabilities, with the company’s 232% revenue growth, with over 35% of sales currently outside of Ireland. He said:
“We are honoured to be among the fastest growing companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. This is a fantastic endorsement from Deloitte that is testament to the dedication of our 25 strong team, who have achieved outstanding performance and growth.
“We are a dynamic organisation which focuses on a unique approach to every project through an enhanced client engagement and creating value through listening, understanding and delivering results for our growing client base.”
“2017 looks set to be as rewarding as this year. We have identified new markets, setting Flint Studios on a clear strategy to become one of the leading digital agencies in Ireland and the UK.
“This will create new jobs as well as creating wealth and measurable results for all of our clients.”
Peter Allen, partner at Deloitte in Belfast, said:
“It is a fantastic achievement for a local company like Flint Studios to make it on to the Fast 500 list, which recognises the fastest growing tech companies in EMEA. Flint Studios was our rising star in the all-Ireland Fast 50 last year and featured on the main Fast 50 list this year.
“It’s great to see innovative indigenous companies competing on the world stage.”
“Innovation is more than technological advancement; it’s also a state of mind,” said Paul Sallomi, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and global technology, media and telecommunications industry leader.
“The winners of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 program in EMEA recognise that this new type of thinking is essential for business success. We look forward to your continued leadership in introducing new tools that can enhance the personal lives of consumers, and drive growth for companies worldwide.”
Flint Studios previously ranked 13 as a Technology Fast 50 Ireland award winner for 2016 and was awarded Deloitte Fast 50 Rising Star in 2015.
