GI Solutions Group has been catapulted into fourth spot in The Sunday Times International Track 200 on the back a near 200% rise in international sales, which grew to £7.2m last year, boosted by its retail-sector contracts in Ireland.
The Leicester-based company completed a multi-million pound management buyout in April to support the continued growth of the business as a marketing services provider.
In January Patrick Headley (pictured), who has been at the company nearly 23 years, was promoted from managing director to chief executive.
GI has expanded from its print roots, working for the likes of Tesco’s Clubcard and operates four divisions, the main print and mail business GI Solutions, insight wing GI Loyalty, procurement arm SynYang and agency GI Red.
Other clients include Waitrose and Pets At Home.
The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales, measured over their latest two years of available accounts. It is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times each June.
Information management provider EDM Group topped this year’s table, recording an average annual international sales growth of 247.44%, followed by marketing services supplier APS Group and banking automation firm Cennox.
