Some good news to finish the week, Sage People (formerly Fairsail) has been named as ‘Scale Up of the Year’ at the The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists (WCIT) Enterprise Awards last night. The award was presented to Sage People at the awards ceremony in the City of London for their rapid growth (1,150% over the last five years) and ambitious vision for future expansion.
These prestigeous WCIT awards have been running for 6 years and celebrate the most successful technology entrepreneurs across the UK and Ireland, and are supported by industry-leading sponsors including Silverpeak, TechMarketView and Smith & Williamson.
“I am delighted that the hard work of the Sage People team has been acknowledged with such a prestigious award” said Adam Hale, Fairsail’s CEO. “Sage People has scaled quickly to become one of the largest tech companies in South East England and is quickly rising to prominence in the global market too, so it’s brilliant to see that achievement recognized. We have ambitious plans for the future and aim to provide further innovation for customers.”
Sage People has scaled rapidly, with headcount at the company having tripled since 2014. Increasing demand from international customers, resulted in a US office being opened in Orlando, Florida last summer, in addition to an office in San Francisco, California. Following significant investment this year, Sage People has aggressive growth plans over the next five years.
