Financial Times Lists Kimble Applications Among Europe’s Fastest-Growing Companies
PSA Provider’s Rapid Expansion Recognized
London — March 3, 2020
Kimble Applications, the global leader in Professional Services Automation, has been recognized on a list of Europe’s 1,000 Fastest Growing Companies by the Financial Times (FT). The prestigious publication reports that despite economic concerns in several countries, their findings suggest “the most nimble and innovative companies are thriving.”
The fourth annual list showed faster-than-ever growth among the top players in Europe, with a minimum growth rate of 38.4 percent required to make the list, compared with 37.7 per cent last year. It records a compound annual growth rate for Kimble of 46% over the relevant period. This is the second year running Kimble has made the list.
Germany is the country with the greatest number of entrants on the list, closely followed by Italy, the UK and France, with these four nations accounting for about 70 per cent of the overall ranking. London retains its lead as the city with the greatest number of fast-growing companies, followed by Paris and Milan, while Warsaw and Vilnius make the top 10 for the first time.
Kimble International CEO Sarah Edwards said:
“We are delighted to see Kimble once again on this list of Europe’s most dynamic and fastest-growing companies. Kimble has been around for ten years this year and we are no longer a start-up — we are around for the long term. Kimble has become the trusted partner for many successful enterprise-size services businesses and we look forward to helping our customers to succeed even further over our next decade.”
Last year, Kimble became the largest European-headquartered independent software vendor (ISV) on the Salesforce platform. It expanded its international presence, opening an office in Melbourne, Australia and increasing investment in Germany. Stephen Kelly, the former CEO of the FTSE 100’s only technology companies, Sage and Micro Focus, joined the Kimble board as a Non-Executive Director, providing guidance to the board as Kimble continues to scale.
