ActiveQuote with their Fast Growth 50 Award
The Awards recognise companies in Wales that have seen extraordinary growth over the previous three years. ActiveQuote achieved an impressive growth of 410% between 2011 and 2013 to clinch the 2014 title of Cardiff’s Fastest Growing Firm and Wales’ 6th Fastest Growing Firm.
Since launching in 2009, ActiveQuote has successfully grown its own direct consumer brands as well as securing strategic white-label partnerships with Confused.com, Gocompare and others.
Dr Richard Theo, founder and managing director of ActiveQuote, said: “We are thrilled to win this Award. We are very proud of what we have achieved in just five years, it’s been a great team effort and the Award is a tribute to every single person who works for ActiveQuote.”
The Award comes towards the end of a highly successful year for ActiveQuote which saw their workforce double, including the appointment of Sally Allan as Head of Marketing who previously worked at Principality Building Society and Head of Human Resources Clare Allen, formerly of ING and Barclays.
ActiveQuote expect these senior appointments will support the business to achieve even greater growth and the company is moving to larger headquarters in Cardiff before the end of 2014 to accommodate the expected expansion to 120 staff.
