"Fast Track 100 has become the definitive barometer of [UK] private company growth." - Sir Richard Branson

The Tech Track 100 is compiled annually by Fast Track, the UK's leading networking company for top-performing private businesses, with title sponsorship from Microsoft. The league tables list the 100 fastest-growing UK TMT companies in The Sunday Times.

We're pleased to announce that Content and Code has powered its way onto the prestigious list this year well near the top at no. 20.

"A new trend this year is that more than a fifth of Tech Track 100 companies are bringing the flexibility and cost-savings of cloud computing to businesses," said Scott Dodds, General Manager, Business Strategy and Marketing at Microsoft. "Content and Code is one of a growing number of Microsoft Certified Partners that are embracing the cloud and helping Microsoft to bring its benefits to companies of all sizes."

Tim Wallis, CEO of Content and Code, said, "The strong growth that lead to our inclusion in the Tech Track 100 this year goes to show that cloud and managed services are genuinely the way forward, that our strategic direction is correct and sound."

"As more and more businesses move to cloud computing, we'll be there to offer our expertise and first-rate services," added COO Craig Beard. "We're proud to have made such a great first showing in the Tech Track 100 and will continue to work hard to provide solutions that ensure success for our clients and ourselves."

The full findings were published in a special 8-page supplement with the business section of The Sunday Times on 19 September and can be read online now at www.fasttrack.co.uk
