Specialist lender Together has been named as one of the 50 fastest growing businesses in the Greater Manchester area.
The prestigious list, compiled by Top 100 law firm Ward Hadaway, celebrates the achievements of fast-growing, profitable, privately-owned businesses across the region.
Together has achieved the accolade after seeing strong turnover growth for three consistent years, with an annual increase of 27% in 2016.
Marc Goldberg, commercial CEO at Together, said:
“We have more than four decades of experience in the specialist lending sector but have seen our business grow significantly in recent years, in response to increased demand for our products. Our loan book currently stands at over £2 billion, with annual new lending in 2016 at just under £1.1 billion.
“On top of this, we created 126 jobs last year, with continuing recruitment underway, and we also announced the acquisition of a neighbouring office building as part of our future plans for expansion, so it’s great to have our commitment to long-term and sustainable growth acknowledged in this way within the Fastest 50.”
Jamie Martin, managing partner at Ward Hadaway, said:
“We congratulate Together and every company in the Ward Hadaway Greater Manchester Fastest 50 for 2017 for their achievements in making this year’s list.
“The Fastest 50 shows what terrific companies we have in the region and underlines what a great place the Greater Manchester area is to do business.”
