Northern Tech Awards 2023 Finalist - FOD Mobility Group

Leading multi-platform mobility technology company FOD Mobility Group has featured in the Northern Tech Awards’ Top 100 Fastest Growing Tech Companies 2023 for the fourth year running.

The tenth edition of the annual awards ceremony was held at the iconic Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh on 20th April by leading technology advisory and investment firm GP Bullhound. The event gathered 250 CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business leaders from the global tech community.

The ceremony, hosted by prize-winning global broadcaster Vanessa Collingridge, showcased and celebrated the fastest growing and most successful tech companies in the north of England and Scotland, based on their revenue growth between 2020 and 2022.

FOD Mobility Group, which operates from headquarters in Saltaire, West Yorkshire, was ranked 23rd in the top 100, and featured in second place among the Top 15 Larger Companies at the awards.

Javed Huq, Executive Director of GP Bullhound, and host at the awards commented: “It was an honour to recognise and celebrate the fastest growing technology companies across the Northern tech ecosystem at last night’s awards in Edinburgh.

“2022 proved to be an outstanding year for the Northern tech sector, despite a more challenging environment across tech, demonstrating the resilience of the brilliant entrepreneurs building these innovative tech companies. The North of the UK is a true powerhouse in starting and scaling world-class businesses, and we look forward to following our talented award winners as they continue their success journeys.”

The winners were unveiled following deliberation by a panel of judges – who included Ana Stewart, Entrepreneur & Eos Advisory Partner, David Moss, Co-Founder of Blue Prism, Jenny Parker, Co-founder of Country Attire, and George Mackintosh, Founder of Eggplant.

The awards come on the back of recent insights from GP Bullhound unveiling 2022 as a record year for the Northern technology ecosystem – with average growth rates of best-performing tech businesses across the North reaching an all-time high, despite a more challenging environment across tech.

Analysis from GP Bullhound revealed that the Top 100 fastest-growing tech companies in the North recorded an average growth rate of 42%, and the Top 10 had an average growth rate of 119%.

Justin Whitston, Founder and CEO at FOD Mobility Group said: “We’re proud to be featured among the fastest growing tech companies in the North of England and Scotland once again this year. We’ve continued to go from strength to strength despite a challenging environment over recent years, expanding our presence across Europe, increasing our transactional revenue, investing in product development and recruitment, and moving to a new head office to accommodate our additional resource. Our continued growth and success is all down to the hard work and dedication of the amazing team we have here at FOD.”
