World First makes Fast Track 100 list for 3rd consecutive year
Currency specialists, World First, were celebrating another year of success today, after being named in the ‘Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100’ 2011 league table for the third year in a row.
World First was the only foreign exchange company to feature in the 2011 list.
This year the company has continued to improve its offer, helping thousands of private and corporate clients manage their exposure to the currency markets.
The company lays claim to the fastest foreign exchange transfer ever recorded, having completed an international money transfer, from pounds to euros, in less than seven minutes earlier this year. Typically transfers of this kind usually take several days when using a bank.
Jonathan Quin, Managing Director at World First said:
“We’re delighted to be featured on the list for a third year in a row. This accolade is testimony to the hard work of our growing team here at World First.
“It’s been a difficult year for the global economy, so we’ve had to work hard to secure new business. It also helps that our existing client base is so loyal – they obviously like what we do here, and we’re happy to be able to keep them on top of the markets with our award winning levels of customer service.”
Sir Richard Branson of Virgin, which has sponsored the league table for all 15 years it has been running, said:
“2011 has been another challenging year for the UK in political and economic terms. Business has faced another tough year with uncertainty over the Euro and low economic growth.
“Against this economic background the strong performance of the Fast Track 100 companies is to be especially applauded.”
The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 list features Britain’s privately-owned companies with the fastest-growing sales.
The 100 companies in this year’s list increased sales by an average of 87% a year over the last three years to a total of £4bn. They more than tripled their workforce to 18,200 over the same period.
The league table features a host of well-known brands including Cath Kidston, Ella’s Kitchen, Jack Wills, Joules and Patisserie Valerie; and many emerging companies in a range of industries.
