Growth100 – Recognising Yorkshire companies that have achieved and sustained rapid growth and the entrepreneurial talent behind them

The fastest growing companies in Yorkshire revealed …

The Yorkshire Growth100 – Insider’s annual league table – ranks those companies which have grown at the fastest pace in the past 5 years with head offices in the Yorkshire region. As a Yorkshire-founded executive search firm, and a leading provider of entrepreneurial directors to SMEs, we are honoured to be involved with this initiative.

This year’s rundown includes businesses from all corners of the county from property developers and manufacturers to restaurant operators and distributors.

 James Searby, a Director and Co-owner of Directorbank Executive Search, comments:

“The Insider Growth100 report recognises those businesses across Yorkshire that have achieved and sustained rapid growth. By doing so, it acknowledges the talent and success of some of the region’s most effective and entrepreneurial business leaders.

Founded in Leeds in 1998, Directorbank has grown from a small start-up to a pan-European search firm. However, we are extremely proud of our Yorkshire heritage and remain highly active in the region.  Last year, 30% of our executive, non-executive and senior management placements were into Northern-based businesses and it’s encouraging to see some of our clients listed in this year’s Growth100 league.”
