Liberty Leasing named in London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ for third Year in a row
Liberty Leasing has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses. This follows success of ranking in Investec’s ‘Mid-Market Top 100 Index’ as one of the fastest growing private companies in the UK back in March last year and winning the NACFB award for smaller funder of the year in December.
To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. More detail on the methodology can be found in the report online at www.1000companies.com.
Allan Clegg, Managing Director commented:
“2015 was a fantastic year for Liberty Leasing and to start this year off by making the LSE Top 1000 for the third time gives us a sense of achievement, pride and encouragement to continue what we’re doing here at Liberty. 10 years ago we were a small team of about 8 employees and now we have around 40 hardworking individuals who are committed, loyal and constantly going above and beyond. Making it onto the Top 1000 is testament to all their hard work.”
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.”
Writing in the publication, The Rt. Hon. George Osborne MP 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.”
