On the back of 2012 being its best ever full year for growth (when turnover expanded by 28% to £5.1 million) and Q1 of 2013 posting its best ever start-of-year figures, business-to-business market research and business intelligence agency B2B International is pleased to report its most profitable half-year ever.
While revenue for the first quarter passed £1.7m, figures for the six months to July show total revenue of £3.1m – up 70% year-on-year.
CEO Matthew Harrison comments, “I’m delighted that we have maintained our great start to the year during Q2. While we have far exceeded our target in revenue, it’s important to acknowledge the hard work done by the whole team to surpass our objectives. This has been our best six months in terms of total commissions, large-scale projects (those exceeding £100,000 in value) and number of interviews carried out – the latter being thanks to a focus on training and efficiency. I would also like to single out our medical market research team, which is 150% ahead of budget.”
In line with its continued growth, the company maintains its recruitment drive for high calibre graduates to strengthen the global research team. To this end, B2B International is pleased to welcome Cambridge University graduate Frances Gregory at its Manchester Headquarters and University College Birmingham graduate Elizabeth Aggrey at its London office.
