FleetEurope receives ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ award
FleetEurope has been named as one of ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ in the London Stock Exchange’s latest report, a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses.
To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. As one of the largest corporate vehicle specialists in the UK, FleetEurope achieved this through the provision of fleet management, leasing and rental solutions for a variety of clients.
From corporate, daily and holiday rental to vehicle leasing, fleet and accident management, FleetEurope’s management team is at the heart of the company’s success. Together, the team has more than 100 years’ experience in the fleet and rental sectors.
Chairman and chief executive, John Yarroll, said: “It was a real honour to be named on such a prestigious list of growing SMEs by the London Stock Exchange. It’s testament to the hard work of all at FleetEurope, who constantly strive to deliver the highest standard to our customers. This accolade will only support our forward-thinking growth strategy in the coming years.”
Xavier Rolet, chief executive, London Stock Exchange Group said: “High growth SMEs are the driving force behind the UK economy, developing the skills, jobs and growth we need. But ambition alone is not enough; their success must be highlighted and their growth properly supported with appropriate finance. That’s why today’s event is so important: demonstrating the strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies to support these inspiring businesses.
“Today’s celebration is fundamental to London Stock Exchange’s core, the need to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and create an entrepreneurship revolution.”
George Osborne, former chancellor of the exchequer, said: “UK high-growth businesses are leading the charge in rebuilding our economy. These companies are the backbone of the British economy. They create high-quality, well paid jobs, innovate and drive economic growth. This government fully understands the need to support ambitious entrepreneurs and ensure they can access the finance they need to grow.
“We have held the steadfast belief that – alongside deficit reduction – nurturing entrepreneurs, creating jobs, supporting hard-working families and keeping taxes low would get the UK economy back on track. Our measures to increase access to finance for business and encourage more investment have had a transformative effect on our economy.”
