Kingdom one of 50 Fastest Growing Companies in Greater Manchester

Kingdom is delighted to have been included in the Ward Hadaway Greater Manchester Fastest 50 list for the second year in a row.

The Fastest 50 is a definitive list of Greater Manchester’s fastest growing privately-owned companies and is run by Ward Hadaway, one of the UK’s top 100 law firms and a major player in the North of England, with offices in Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester. Established in 1988, they are among the to-ranked law firms in the UK.

The initiative is backed by Greater Manchester Business Week and the Manchester Evening News.

The Fastest 50 is described on Ward Hadaway’s website as “an initiative ... which recognises outstanding business achievement by companies across the North of England.

“It highlights and celebrates the achievements of fast-growing, profitable companies in the North East, Yorkshire and the North West by compiling and publishing annual lists of the 50 fastest growing privately-owned businesses in each of those three regions.

“Ward Hadaway has been holding Fastest 50 Awards in the North East since 1998, in Yorkshire since 2011 and in Greater Manchester since 2014, reflecting the firm’s offices in Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester.

“The characteristics of Fastest 50 companies – ambition, talent, hard work and determination – are what we aim to exemplify in the work which we do with businesses.”

Jamie Martin, Managing Partner at Ward Hadaway, said: "We congratulate Kingdom and every company in the Ward Hadaway Greater Manchester Fastest 50 for 2017 for their achievements in making this year's list.
