The IDHL Group, comprising WMG, NetConstruct and Ingenuity Digital, has been ranked as one of the region’s 50 fastest growing tech companies at a high-profile awards ceremony in Leeds last week.
The GP Bullhound Northern Tech Awards celebrated the achievements of some of the fastest-growing tech and digital companies in the UK, ranking the companies with a base in the north.
Taking place on the evening of Thursday 26 March, the companies were revealed based on their turnover over the last three years. The IDHL Group secured 35th place with 65.7% revenue growth between 2012 and 2014, ranking ahead of some of the biggest names in the industry.
