1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain is a celebration of some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK.
To be included in this list, companies had to demonstrate not only positive growth in revenue over the last four years, but also increase in employee numbers, workspace, or contract wins.
The Appointment Group is proud to be recognised in this report and be part of one of the 1,000 most vibrant companies in the UK that flourished even in the face of recession. In addition, The Appointment Group is the only Travel Management Company (£75M-£100M revenue bracket) published by the London Stock Exchange.
Formed in 1988 by Maurice Veronique and John Gianquitto, The Appointment Group began as Travel By Appointment, a travel management company working in the corporate, music and entertainment business. Today Travel By Appointment handles the corporate travel requirements of a wide range of blue chip clients across many different business sectors, including Finance, banking and Hedge Funds. The group now includes further divisions - Leisure By Appointment, Events By Appointment, Music By Appointment.
The Appointment Group now boasts fast-growing offices in New York, Los Angeles, Melbourne and Sydney in addition to its London base.
“We are very proud to have been elected as one of the 1,000 companies to Inspire Britain, this is due to the continued hard work, commitment and dedication of our staff, to the success of The Appointment Group. This accolade continues our recognition from the city after our nomination last year in the Deloitte UK Futures 1000 group of top-performing businesses through the recession“ commented John Gianquitto, Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
