It features a diverse range of companies, such as cheesemaker Wensleydale Dairy Products, travel search engine Skyscanner, architect Zaha Hadid, Oscar-winning visual effects studio Framestore, and Cath Kidston, the homeware and fashion retailer.
Nick True, chairman and founder of TLC Marketing, says: “This is a great moment for us as a business. The award is a welcome nod to our international achievements. We have offices in 14 countries around the world, working with over 50 of the world’s top 100 brands – from McDonald’s to Samsung, L’Oreal to Nestle. We’re incredibly proud of our international growth – it sends a powerful message to the industry about our global reward expertise and intelligence.”
Recent notable successes of the agency include a raft of awards both in the UK and globally including two IPM awards (Gold and Silver); NC Awards for Clarins and Ferrero campaigns; a Hermes Creative Award; a place in the London Stock Exchange’s top 1000 companies to Inspire Britain report; and voted as #2 UK’s most Respected Independent Agency by The DRUM.
The companies on the league table increased their overseas sales by an average of 32% a year over two years to a total of £8.2bn, employ more than 194,000 staff, having added 43,000 jobs during this time, some as a result of acquisitions.
Amanda Murphy, UK head of corporate banking at HSBC, commented: “The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 is a great reflection of the value of building connections overseas. The world is getting smaller, and international business relationships are easier to build, providing ambitious businesses with many more opportunities to grow. I'm delighted to see so many great British mid-sized firms making such a strong impression on the world stage."
