FEBE names Xalient for fast growth
FEBE (For Entrepreneurs By Entrepreneurs) (www.febe.com) names secure network transformation specialist, Xalient (www.xalient.com) as the fastest growing founder-led private company in the FEBE Growth 100 listing for the second year.
FEBE’s Growth 100 recognizes and ranks the fastest growing private businesses with founders still actively involved who are driving their companies to deliver significant sales, revenue, and profit, against a backdrop of unprecedented economic challenges. The ultimate ranking of 100 is data-driven, with companies ordered by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in sales over the last three financial years.
“We are extremely proud to be recognized by FEBE for the second consecutive year. We started the business eight years ago with a clear vision and purpose, having identified a gap in the secure networking technology space, and I’m delighted that it’s come to fruition,” says Sherry Vaswani, Group Chief Executive Officer, Xalient. “With global brands, household names such as Kellogg’s, Keurig Dr Pepper and WPP among our customers and around half our business today coming from the USA.”
“We’re so excited to publish this year’s Growth 100. So many people think that business founders just ‘get lucky’ or think of an idea one day and are successful the next. But we know that the journey to success is anything but smooth,” says Charlotte Quince, Co-founder, FEBE. “The Growth 100 celebrates those who have embraced the entrepreneurial roller coaster and who are now thriving as some of the fastest growing brands in the country.”
Former Dragon’s Den Dragon and FEBE Growth 100 ambassador, Jenny Campbell adds, “I’m very proud to be part of something that celebrates and supports the very best British entrepreneurs and their companies. FEBE Growth 100 focuses on true entrepreneurialism. Founders are unique: their experiences, their vision and their resilience are unlike anything else. So, we want to celebrate these ‘dare to doers’ and shine a light on the incredible accomplishments of some of the finest and fastest-growing companies in the country.”
Sitting alongside the FEBE Growth 100 is the FEBE’s Watch List that celebrates businesses which do not meet all of the Growth 100 criteria but have an amazing growth story and are achieving great things.
