Oct 03, 2017 by Spark Energy
Spark, the only multi-utility supplier dedicated to the lettings industry, is celebrating being the top domestic energy supplier on the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250.
Spark shot up 75 places in the rankings after a year in which the company extended its relationship with the UK’s largest letting agencies, grew its workforce to over 400 and acquired telecommunications provider, Home Telecom.
Spark’s CEO, Chris Gauld, said: “We’ve had a massively successful year and it’s great to be recognised by the respected Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250. We’re working with the country’s largest and most successful letting agents, social housing providers and property managers and we’re constantly investing in our people and technology to provide their landlords and tenants with an awesome service and competitive prices.
“Earlier in the year we acquired Home Telecom, who also focus on the rental sector, and we’re now able to offer our letting partners tailored telecoms and broadband services as well as exclusive Sky TV packages designed for the rental market. Looking ahead to 2018 we’ll be launching some exciting new products and services which will help make the home-move process even more rewarding for letting agents and tenants.”
The Top Track 250 ranks Britain’s private mid-market growth companies by sales, with a required growth in sales or profit necessary for inclusion.
Sacha Romanovitch, chief executive of Grant Thornton UK LLP, the title sponsor of the league table, praised the companies for their performance: “The UK may be at a pivotal point in its history, but the Top Track 250 clearly demonstrates what can be achieved by exciting dynamic businesses. These companies think locally and act globally, they innovate to grow and embrace an entrepreneurial spirit that this country needs to secure a positive post-Brexit future. At Grant Thornton we are seeking to stimulate ideas and actions that can help shape a vibrant UK economy that thrives. We can all learn a lot from the Top Track 250.”
