Top 300 ranking for Company-X
Hamilton’s Company-X has ranked number 330 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific 2017, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over three years.
Company-X grew 138 per cent during this period.
Company-X directors David Hallett and Jeremy Hughes credit targeted marketing, leveraging international industry relationships and the company delivering on its promises with the company's 138 per cent revenue growth over the past three years.
Jeremy says all of that was possible because of the calibre of staff Company-X attracts.
“A significant factor is the fact that we have a world class development team,” Jeremy says.
“It’s quite clear when we listen to the feedback from our international clients.
“Doing what we said we would do is one of our core values.”
David says Company-X benefits from being based in the Waikato, which has a reputation as the Silicon Valley of New Zealand, partially thanks to the University of Waikato’s exceptional Computer Science Department.
“The University of Waikato produces New Zealand’s best technologists and many of them come and work for us at CompanyX,” David says. “The university is in the world’s top 150 for Computer Science and Information Systems.”
Graduates include Dr Craig NevilleManning who led Google’s engineering division.
