Media Momentum fastest growing digital companies 2008
13 March 2008: Latitude Group, specialists in search engine optimisation and paid search, once again appears in the top half of the ranks of the Media Momentum Top 50 fastest growing companies, coming in at 23rd. In 2006, Latitude was the proud winner of the coveted Fastest Growing Company Award, and in 2007 was listed in the Top 20 Fastest Growing Digital Companies. The annual event, organised by investment bank GP Bullhound, recognises the fastest growing digital media companies in the UK.
At the Media Momentum Award ceremony, held last night at Sketch in London, just five companies selected from across the digital media industry took accolades. The entrants are ranked in a revenue-based league, and judged by a high-profile panel which this year included representatives from New Media Age, Olswang and 3i amongst others, with ECI Partners and search firm Spectrum as Award sponsors.
“Competition was as fierce as in previous years, and here at GP Bullhound we are proud to elevate these outstanding achievers. We hope that these awards will provide even greater momentum to our finalists in their respective fields as they continue to develop and grow,” said Manish Madhvani, Co-founder and Partner, GP Bullhound.
Dylan Thwaites, Latitude CEO, commented, “Here at Latitude we always strive for excellence. This award highlights what we and the industry have known for some time — this being our third year to take home a Media Momentum Top 50 award. I’d like to thank the whole Latitude team for their tremendous efforts. Without them and our loyal and growing customer base we would not be here today.”
