Financial Times names Xalient Among Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies

Xalient is proud to announce that it has been named in the Financial Times sixth annual list of Europe’s 1000 fastest-growing companies.  

Xalient, one of the UK’s leading independent network transformation companies,  specialising in software-defined networking, cloud security and unified communications, has been named amongst the fastest growing companies in Europe, joining the top 50% of the FT 1000 list. Xalient ranks at #365 across Europe and is the 70th amongst just 155 UK companies, across all industry sectors, that feature this time.  

This is Xalient’s first entry into the FT 1000 list and it comes after a year of strong growth both in the UK and US.  

Speaking of the achievement, Xalient’s Chief Executive Officer, Sherry Vaswani said: “It is brilliant to see that Xalient has been recognised as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies and to be named on this prestigious list. It is a testament to the expertise and skills of our incredible team around the world, the results we have achieved for our amazing customers, and our commitment to delivering excellence in everything we do. 

We have seen significant growth over the last two years as digital transformation programs have accelerated and, as a result, demand for cyber security and networking technologies that underpin transformation, has grown rapidly, in particular with companies shifting to hybrid working models. The growing importance of the network and its strategic position in helping organisations move to the cloud is undoubtedly a major driving factor in our continuing global success, as is our continuing investment in service innovation and AI.  

We hope to quickly rise through these rankings over the coming years, and I personally, look forward to seeing what our amazing team can achieve.” 

The Financial Times and their data partner Statista, in their analysis of the rankings, noted that companies that made the cut this year were sufficiently resilient to survive and thrive despite the impact of the pandemic. Technology leads the sectorial mix with a fifth of the companies on the list, followed by construction and retail. Italy is the country with the most entries on the list, followed by Germany and the United Kingdom.  

The Financial Times identify Europe’s top 1000 fastest growing companies every year. The list, now in its sixth-year ranks Europe’s most nimble and inventive companies.
