Nottingham based digital marketing agency Impression has been named the Midlands Regional Winner in Deloitte’s Fast 50 awards. The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is one of the UK’s foremost technology award programmes, celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship.
Impression, which was founded in 2012, is one of only two businesses in the list to be based here in the Midlands, and the highest ranking Mids business overall.
Speaking of the award, Impression founder Aaron Dicks said: “We’re incredibly proud to be named in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50. For us, the most important thing is that we deliver quality – and our high retention rates and impressive award wins are testament to this commitment. At the same time, to be named amongst such prestigious brands is obviously something of which the whole team can be very proud.
“We believe that the Midlands has a huge amount of potential as a digital and technology hub and we’re seeing that coming to fruition in the growth of digital and tech businesses throughout the region.”
The Fast 50 is judged on sales growth, with the yearly growth percentages of the top 50 ranging from 700% upwards. The placement of Impression amongst the Fast 50 is proof of the agency’s impressive growth over the past six years.
Deloitte Fast 50’s Lead Partner Duncan Downs explained the value of the award: “I would like to personally congratulate each and every one of this year’s winners on their outstanding performance.
“Their enviable success should be recognised even more favourably in this time of macroeconomic and political uncertainty.
“These organisations are shaping the technology landscape and look set to continue being some of the UK’s most exciting and inspiring companies in the years to come.”
Impression co-founder Tom Craig explained how the agency has grown and expects to grow in the coming years:
“We’ve grown from a team of two to more than 40 digital marketing professionals since our inception and much of that growth is down to the individuals we’ve recruited. Every single person here plays an essential role in our success.
“That’s why we’ll be continuing to invest in our team – which means creating a great working culture, working environment, training, support and socials. We recognise the excellent calibre of the universities here in the Midlands and continue to work with those to recruit high potential graduates onto our grad scheme, while we’re always open to speaking with more experienced professionals too.
“We look forward to continuing to work with clients here in the Midlands and beyond to achieve their online marketing goals.”
