The Deloitte Fast 50 is recognised worldwide and should further strengthen the EssentialSkillz brand in export markets where 95% of our sales are made. However, the most pleasing aspect of the award, is that it gives due recognition to the effort our people make in creating such a compelling offering to our rapidly growing customer base.“
Announcing the winners of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 programme, Peter Allen, Partner, Deloitte Belfast said: “We are delighted to be recognising these exceptional and innovative Irish companies. Their contribution to the technology sector is critical to the success of the industry overall in Ireland and it is clear from the turnover derived from exports that they are having considerable success in global markets also.”
