Touch named as one of 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2019

Touch has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2019. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), with companies representing more than 40 sectors and spanning every country and region across the UK.

It is the fourth consecutive year that touch has been recognised in the report, which marks its sixth edition this year. To be selected for the list, businesses had to demonstrate not only positive revenue growth over the last three years but also outperform their sector peers.

Mike Ford, board director at touch, said: “To be recognised for the fourth year in a row, as one of the London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ is a fantastic achievement that we are all immensely proud of. This recognition is a reflection of the great work our fabulous team continues to deliver for our clients and their audiences on every project. Our people are our greatest asset.

“We specialise in creating unique, emotive experiences; we do that by making it our mission to truly understand our audiences. Our team work tirelessly to deliver results and meaningful impact, and to be recognised for that is a great testament to each and every member of the touch family.”

David Schwimmer, CEO of the London Stock Exchange Group, added: “Congratulations to all the companies selected for inclusion in the sixth edition of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report, which identifies the UK’s most dynamic SMEs. SMEs drive growth, innovation and job creation and are the lifeblood of the British economy. We believe that supporting the growth of these businesses is critical to the UK economy and the creation of a society that works for everyone.”
