Mason Advisory listed in 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report

The thriving North West IT consultancy celebrates five years in operation so this accolade adds to the celebrations. The sixth edition of the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report celebrates some of the fastest-growing, dynamic SMEs with companies representing over 40 sectors and spanning every country and region across the UK. It also examines the opportunities and challenges facing businesses and looks at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of British economics.

To be included in the report, companies need to show positive revenue growth over the last three years and demonstrate that they are outperforming their sector peers.

Established by Steve Watmough, Mason Advisory has a growing reputation in the UK and globally as an IT specialist, renowned for its high-quality consultants, specialist skills, and support through digital transformation projects and partnerships. It counts many well-known brands as customers, from sectors such as finance, life sciences, retail, FMCG, emergency services, health, energy, water, education, government and transport.

Steve says: “This recognition is such a huge honour for us and the whole team is so excited to be featured in the report. In the last five years, we’ve had consistent revenue growth, expanded the team and developed our customer base in the UK and abroad. We have grown from a specialist player to a leading IT advisory company, competing with the industry heavyweights in the £8.2 billion UK management consultancy sector.

“We are in a position to build on our success, and accolades such as this one, strengthen our reputation in the marketplace and allow us to take the business to the next level.”

Steve adds: “Despite the uncertain, disruptive times we are in, I’m proud of the outstanding results our team continues to deliver and their hard work and commitment behind this fantastic achievement. Our success is down to the high calibre of consultants on the team and our shared desire to bring digital transformation and technological innovation to our customers around the world.”

David Schwimmer, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group, says: “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.”

Earlier this year, Mason Advisory was recognised by the Financial Times as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, and one of the leading management consultancies in the UK. It was awarded the Queen’s award for Enterprise in the international trade category, and was also recognised by Great Place to Work ® as a centre of Excellence in Wellbeing.

With offices at MediaCityUK, Salford, and London, Mason Advisory provides IT consultancy and advisory services, solving complex business challenges through the intelligent use of IT resources. Its range of advisory services includes IT strategy and transformation, sourcing, architecture, IT delivery, service management, operating model and organisational design.
