James and James has joined the 22nd annual Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 – a league table, published this weekend, that ranks Britain’s private companies with the fastest-growing sales.

The company was ranked #83 on the list, thanks to 50% annual sales growth over the last three years.

The news comes hot on the heels of a record-breaking Black Friday Cyber Monday weekend for the company and is the latest in a string of accolades. These include a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the field of Innovation, and previous rankings on the FT1000 and Inc. 5000 lists of Europe’s fastest-growing companies.

Commenting on the news, James Hyde, Co-founder and CEO, said: “We focus on developing technology and processes that help online retailers improve their operations and delight their customers. This helps them to grow faster than the wider eCommerce market – and helps us to grow with them. Joining the Fast Track 100 is a real testament to the success of this approach.”

Other technology-driven businesses to have featured on the list range from vacuum cleaner innovators, Dyson, to silicon chip pioneers, ARM.

Peter Cowley is an entrepreneur and former “UK Angel Investor of the Year”, who took a stake in James and James in 2013 and now chairs its board. He commented: “Securing a spot on the Fast Track 100 has long been a badge of honor for disruptive companies, with many going on to become household names. As such, James and James’s inclusion on the list this year reflects both its achievements to date and the many exciting developments that are yet to come.”

The full league table was published on 2 December 2018, as a 10-page supplement in the business section of The Sunday Times – one of the UK’s leading national newspapers. Read it online now.
