Mark Group on the International Fast Track
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Mark Group, the Philadelphia-based energy efficiency service provider, is celebrating after being recognized in the UK’s Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 awards as the ‘Fastest Growing Business.’
Business heads from Mark Group’s four international offices, including North America CEO, Jeff Bartos, gathered at a ceremony in London, England to receive the award which had seen Mark Group place first in Britain’s list of 200 private companies with the fastest-growing international sales.
Guests at the event totalled over 200 and included founders and senior directors from well-known businesses such as Cath Kidston, Merlin Entertainments and Skyscanner. Combined, the businesses had increased their international sales over the last two years by an average of 44% per year to a total of $13.25 billion. Staff numbers had risen by 31,000 over the same period to 130,000, some as a result of acquisitions.
Jeff Bartos, Mark Group CEO, said: “When we launched Mark Group in Philadelphia three years ago, we knew we were part of a terrific international energy efficiency business which was entrepreneurial and focused for growth. This award recognizes that we are absolutely on the right track and I was proud to stand on the podium last week and receive the award alongside my international colleagues. I look forward to bringing the positive energy from winning this award back home to Philadelphia and sharing it with our team as we work to grow Mark Group nationally.”
