Further success for Reassured this year as we secure a position in The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 league table of 2019.
The Fast Track 100, in its 23rd year, is compiled by Fast Track, the UK’s leading events company, and published in The Sunday Times each December.
The league table features the UK’s top 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales in the last three years.
Reassured are proud to be placed alongside household brands across all industries, such as BrewDog, Mowgli Street Food and menswear designer, END.
This year’s Fast Track 100 saw an average three-year sales growth of between 44% to 284% per annum to a combined total of £3 billion, and a combined operating profit of £272 million for all companies.
To place within the Fast Track 100, companies are required to make at least £5 million of sales in their most recent financial period, and to have made operating profit of at least £500k for the same year, along with other specific set criteria.
Reassured ranked 59th in the league table, with an average sales increase over three years of 56.31%, and annual sales reaching £37.8 million in January 2019.
Phil Jeynes, Director of Corporate Sales at Reassured, said of the announcement:
To be listed in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 is a true achievement for us at Reassured; another milestone for our business and a testament to our highly talented and committed employees.
This recognition cements our position as one of the UK’s leading life insurance brokers, boosts our business profile and opens up new opportunities for growth within the industry.
Founded in 2009 by CEO Steve Marshall and COO Laura McGraw with a team of just four, Reassured now employs over 350 sales staff across four sites (Basingstoke, Portsmouth, Manchester and Southampton) with a total employee count of 600.
Key to our success is through recruiting the very best talent in sales, outstanding customer service and market-leading conversions; with leads driven from an effective digital marketing strategy.
This has paved the way into partnerships with some of the biggest brands in the life insurance industry, including Post Office and Co-op.
The accolade follows hot on the heels of a double award win at the Institute of Sales Management’s British Excellence in Sales Management Awards (BESMA), for Best Sales Employer and Sales Team of the Year (Over 50 staff), as well as the title of Employer of the Year at the Inspire19 Business Awards in November.
