Skipton Properties has been named as one of the 50 fastest growing companies in Yorkshire. The prestigious Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 Awards, which the eminent Northern law firm established more than a decade ago, celebrate growth, innovation, and the commercial achievements of Yorkshire businesses.
The Yorkshire Fastest 50 list is being published as usual after a decision by the organisers to continue to celebrate these successes despite the impact of the pandemic, in an attempt to continue to motivate and inspire those operating in the Yorkshire business community.
Skipton Properties is back on the Fastest 50 list after making our debut in 2017. As with all the companies on the 2021 Fastest 50 List, our inclusion relates to our performance and growth during a period well before the pandemic and Brexit hit. Our ranking is based on data for our financial year ending June 2019.
Sarah Barraclough, Skipton Properties’ Managing Director, said: “We welcomed the news of our inclusion on the 2021 Yorkshire Fastest 50 list in recognition of our previous performance, particularly at such a challenging time for so many companies, including our own. It has been inspiring to see so many local companies of all sizes diversify and adapt in recent months, and to see such a diverse and impressive business cohort represented on the Fastest 50 list. Yorkshire truly is a Northern powerhouse. We build in and around the Dales and are also proud to be recognised as a successful business with a rural, rather than city centre, base.
“Whilst the dual impacts of the pandemic and Brexit have stifled our growth and performance in recent months, our focus on building beautiful, high-quality homes and building for the future of our business and our fantastic team has never wavered. We hope to have similarly positive figures to report on further down the line, and to be eligible for inclusion on future Fastest 50 lists.”
Jonathan Pollard, a Corporate Partner at Ward Hadaway, said, “Congratulations to Skipton Properties and every company in the Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 for 2021 for their tremendous achievement in making this year’s list. This year’s Fastest 50 list, as always, boasts many management teams with an unwavering passion to succeed who have created high growth, profitable businesses. It’s this spirit, and the business success that it creates, that we are delighted to celebrate, particularly this year during such a challenging time for businesses.”
