16 Companies in Yorkshire Win Places on League Table of Britain’s Fastest-Growing International Sales Stars – Yorkshire Mafia

Hayley Atkinson, Marketing Coordinator Feb 25, 2019

Published this weekend, the 10th annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league table ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales.

Techbuyer were ranked within the top 10 in Yorkshire for international sales growth. Josh Kidd, Techbuyer sales director, commented: “When I joined Techbuyer, there were less than ten employees in a small office in Harrogate. Over seven years later, we have a global team of 140 employees across seven sites. Some of the biggest challenges we’ve faced with international growth include maintaining a consistent service across all countries, and good communication between colleagues across six different time zones– but the team at Techbuyer have done amazingly.”

“We work hard to ensure all new employees are on board with our long-term goals and look after each and every customer, no matter where they are in the world. We always look at the bigger picture rather than the short-term wins and this has significantly contributed to our international growth.”

“We are honoured to have been ranked in the Sunday Times Fast Track 200 amongst household names. Every single person at Techbuyer makes a difference and impacts how the company grows. Acknowledgement from this prestigious league table shows their efforts are being recognised outside the company too.”
