Last Tuesday, Chief Executive Officer Stuart McLachlan, Executive Chairman Malcolm Paul and Chief Financial Officer Alan Matthews attended the ‘SME Export Track 100 awards dinner’, held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in London. The evening celebrated Britain’s fastest growing exporters, recognizing ‘100 organizations who have increased their international sales over their latest two years by between 28% and 280% a year to a total of £677m’. Businesses who attended the awards ranged from mini satellite manufacturers to an online private jet hire company.
There were a number of speakers throughout the event, including Dr Liam Fox of the Conservative Party, Gareth Oakley of Lloyd’s Banking Group, Tom Chapman of Matchesfashion.com and Tim Warrillow of Fever-Tree. Tom Chapman shared how the role of digitalization had been a ‘game changer’, while Tim Warrillow heavily praised overseas markets as a platform for success.
Anthesis’ Chief Executive Officer Stuart McLachlan said:
‘“Being placed in the top ten for this award is a great reflection of our companies’ international growth over the past three and a half years. Anthesis has gone from strength to strength with the addition of new and diverse service lines and deep subject matter expertise across the globe.”
