Automotive funding and retailing group Evolution Funding has been named ‘Fastest Growing Larger Company of the Year’ at the Northern Tech Awards 2017.
Technology investment bank GP Bullhound this year partnered with Tech North, the government backed tech sector initiative, to find, recognise and celebrate the region’s biggest tech success stories.
The Awards recognise the top 100 fastest growing technology companies in the North and the innovative technologies they have created, as well as identifying the next British tech unicorns.
With a 58% annual revenue growth between the last three years, Evolution not only secured ‘Fastest Growing Larger Company of the Year’ but was also recognised as one of the ‘Top 50 Fastest Growing Technology Companies’, ranking 27th in the table.
Evolution CEO Jeremy Levine said:
“Evolution has consistently had a tech-first approach throughout our brands and we have invested heavily in our technology and systems to deliver a best-in-class finance solution to both our dealer partners and our customers.
“Our approach to technology development has helped to drive our growth and expansion and we are delighted to have this recognised by the prestigious Northern Tech Awards”.
The winners of the Northern Tech Awards were decided by a judging panel which included Peter Flint, Founder of real estate site Trulia, along with senior figures within successful businesses such as Barclays, Boohoo, Sky Betting and Gaming, Sage and Wired magazine.
