Xceed Group logoXceed Group provides IT professional services for a range of FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 clients across financial services, telecommunications, media and energy markets. “It’s great to see that further investment in our IP has started to show a really clear return with our FIMS (Flexible Infrastructure Managed Services) practice, having been particularly key to driving our growth in the US,” John Casserly, CEO and Founder of Xceed Group explained. “The Sunday Times Heathrow SME Export Track 100 is based on 2014 financial results and with even greater US success in 2015 and 2016, Xceed Group is very optimistic for next year’s results and hopes to climb even further up the table”.Xceed Group has also had recent success in Switzerland this year, after being approached by a retail bank for programme recovery assistance.

Being included in The Sunday Times SME Export Track 100 for fastest growing international sales is a fantastic validation of the services we provide.” “British technology companies are some of the most innovative in the world, and play an important role in driving our economy,” added Stewart. “Receiving this recognition is not just testament to our team’s success, it also evidences our fantastic customer portfolio, and is a brilliant demonstration of the talent and success in this sector.” Minister of State for Trade and Investment, Lord Price, added: “It’s great to see so many small and medium sized businesses successfully trading around the world.

They are the lifeblood of our economy – providing jobs and growth – and they also play an important role in ensuring the UK remains a great trading nation. What these great British brands show is that the demand and opportunity is out there.
I want more companies to follow their lead and seize it.” Other companies that were recognised in the league table include Black Swan Data, Arrow Media and Wilkinson Eyre.
