Red Letter Days has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses.
To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. More detail on the methodology can be found in the report online at www.1000companies.com.
Red Letter Days, set up in 1989, pioneered the concept of giving unforgettable experiences as gifts. The idea caught people’s imaginations and today the company continues in its mission to make memories for as many people as possible by offering unique days out and breaks.
The corporate arm of the business, Red Letter Days For Business, helped support the rapid growth of the company; its team of incentive and reward experts work with businesses across the UK to recognise and engage employees, and incentivise and reward customers.
Seeing a gap for reward solutions in the business-to-business market, Red Letter Days For Business also launched its own shopping and leisure voucher, Lifestyle, in 2012.
Bill Alexander, CEO, Red Letter Days, said: “To be included in this list is a fantastic achievement and something we’re very proud of. The industries we operate in are extremely competitive yet our ambition to push boundaries has helped result in strong company growth.
“Lifestyle, our shopping and leisure voucher, launched four years ago and this year we’re celebrating sales of over £4 million as we gain popular brand partners every month to join the likes of John Lewis, M&S and Currys. It shows the hard-work and dedication from our team.
“Here’s to inspiring Britain this year and striving to do the same in the future.”
Xavier Rolet, chief executive, London Stock Exchange Group said: “High growth SMEs are the driving force behind the UK economy, developing the skills, jobs and growth we need. But ambition alone is not enough; their success must be highlighted and their growth properly supported with appropriate finance. That’s why today’s event is so important: demonstrating the strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies to support these inspiring businesses.
“Today’s celebration is fundamental to London Stock Exchange’s core, the need to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and create an entrepreneurship revolution.”
