Spencer Ogden announced as International Growth Business of the Year at the National Business Awards
The award, which was presented to CEO David Spencer-Percival and Director Ed Ogden at last night’s ceremony, recognised the British business’s exceptional international expansion, particularly over the past year. The accolade highlights growth not only in terms of its geographical expansion but also sales, profits and acquisitions.
As the first recruitment consultancy to service the entire end-to-end energy sector, Spencer Ogden has grown rapidly since its inception in 2010. In the past three months, the business has opened a further four international offices in Denver, San Diego, Orlando and Calgary, and now has a total of 15 global hubs. The company has a headcount of over 400 employees and is on track to reach a turnover of £75 million in its 5th year of trading.
The long established National Business Awards continue to draw attention to Britain’s leading businesses, business leaders and social enterprises. Introduced by Prime Minister David Cameron, this year’s winners put the spotlight on success and innovation in business across the UK.
David Spencer-Percival, CEO, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have our achievements recognised at such a high level. Over the past five years, we have focused on building a business that is not only recognised across the entire energy sector internationally, but that provides the highest quality service possible.
“Being counted amongst the most ground-breaking British enterprises this year is certainly one of my career highlights. This acknowledgement is thanks in no small way to every one of our consultants, confirming the passion and hard work they have shown.”
Ed Ogden, director, said, "Our international growth was made possible by the success of our UK operations that achieved triple digit growth in the first three years - and by one of the best management teams you could ever work with.
“Being recognised for international growth with this award is a really great achievement for us and I can't wait to see where we can take the business in the coming years considering the success we have achieved in such a short space of time."
The company’s focus on all energy industries, from oil and gas to renewables and project financing to distribution, is a key driver for the businesses growth and central to its innovative approach.
