October 25, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
London, 25 October 2007 – Search engine marketing specialist Latitude Group achieved another landmark on Friday 19 October when it reached a top ten position in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 league table. Latitude, the UK’s number one independent search marketing agency, has been rated tenth in the prestigious chart, which “honours business growth, technological innovation and UK entrepreneurial spirit”.

Over 10 years, the Deloitte Fast 50 Awards have become the benchmark to identify the UK’s fastest-growing high-technology companies.

Latitude, which has offices in London and Warrington, Cheshire, is the top company for the North West.

Latitude CEO Dylan Thwaites said: “We are pleased to see Latitude’s dynamic thinking and innovative approach to business recognised by such an authoritative organisation as Deloitte. This award is further evidence of our commitment to offer our clients leading-edge services, and our efforts to always stay at the top of our game."

He added: “We’ve been growing faster than the market rate for some time now – we’re not just riding the wave. It’s a fast moving market in itself though, and we’ve been good at gaining blue-chip client business along the way.”
Damian Sanders, head of telecommunications, media and technology at Deloitte, North West, said: “Once again, this year’s ranking showcases the fastest growing and brightest technology companies in the UK. The spectacular growth achieved by these companies is driven by both old and new market forces; reliable distribution, cost reduction as well as digital search and security have all played a part.”
