Sleek Events ranked in Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100
Sleek Events, run by Jennifer Davidson (who is also a Conference News columnist) has announced it is the highest-placed business representing the sector in this year’s Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100. Sleek Events was ranked number 19 in the league table.
The Fast Track 100 league table ranks Britain's 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales over their latest three years.
The 23rd iteration of the list was compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times on 1 December, with the awards to follow in May.
Sleek Events won Best Overall Business at the Best Business Women Awards in October. In this year’s Fast Track 100 league table, there are a total of 28 female founders, co-founders or chief executives running 26 businesses.
Other female founders include Charlotte Tilbury (number 46) and Mowgli Street Food’s Nisha Katona MBE (number 45).
Davidson started Sleek Events in 2015. Since then, the company has expanded to a team of event specialists servicing both corporate clients and private parties.
Davidson said: “I had been interviewed earlier in the year after being approached by the team at Fast Track. They only told us about us making the list on Thursday and, of course, we rushed out first thing on Sunday morning to grab a few copies. I never dreamed we would make the top 20!
“This recognition is down to the fantastic team we have at Sleek Events. Their dedication to creating bespoke, unforgettable experiences for our clients is second to none. I’m exceedingly proud of everyone and very thankful to our clients, suppliers and trusted freelancers who have supported us over the last few years.”
Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Group, said, “While these are uncertain times, there is one thing I am certain of: entrepreneurs are the ones driving innovation, chasing improvements and challenging the norm.
“There are so many inspiring examples of this on the Fast Track 100 league table and it’s heartening to see the power of entrepreneurship to create jobs and positive change across Britain.”
