Fifty of the fastest-growing businesses in Greater Manchester have been identified as part of a project to highlight the very best of Northern leadership.

The businesses on the list have added billions of pounds in revenues in the last two years to the wealth of the region.

The data has been compiled by TheBusinessDesk.com and Experian as part of our 2019 Northern Leadership Awards, supported by CMS.

The businesses have all shown strong growth over the last two accounting periods and now have turnover of at least £20m. The list, published below, includes the likes of Arrow Global, the Magpie Group and JD Sports.

Leaders from the businesses listed below now have the opportunity to enter the awards in a category which will recognise leadership in the region’s fastest growing firms. Nominations are open for the 2019 Northern Leadership Awards and the deadline for entries is Friday, July 19. For more information, click here.

The top 50 lists for Liverpool and Leeds were published earlier this week and Sheffield City Region will be revealed tomorrow.

The criteria for the list were businesses registered in Greater Manchester which have shown revenue growth in each of the last two accounting periods and now have turnover of at least £20m. The businesses had to be independent or the parent company, and not subsidiaries of a group registered elsewhere.

The fastest-growing businesses will be invited to a private drinks event next month and also encouraged to enter someone from their organisation into the 2019 Northern Leadership Awards.  The Awards will include a City Region award drawn from the top 50 for a leader within that business which has had a significant impact on that growth, whether their input was focused on culture, innovation, commercial or some other aspect of the transformation. If you want to find out more, get in touch with us by emailing leadership@thebusinessdesk.com.

As well as the city region business leader awards, there are nine other categories which are open to leaders from any organisation operating across the North of England.

Nominations are now open for the 2019 Northern Leadership Awards and the deadline for entries is Friday, July 19. For more information, click here.
