MegaGrowth 50 returns for 2022, spearheaded by Kreston Reeves

MegaGrowth 50 - the annual list of the fastest-growing businesses in the county - is returning.

Now in its 19th year, it took a break during the challenges brought about by the pandemic.

But now MegaGrowth 50 is mounting a comeback.

Its performance table is put together based on the average turnover growth of privately owned businesses that have a minimum turnover of £1million, as stipulated in full accounts registered at Companies House across the last four years.

Businesses with notable turnover growth over recent years that do not register full accounts at Companies House are also recognised and are invited to submit their accounts for consideration. The deadline for all entries is 5pm on June 1.

MegaGrowth 50 is compiled and sponsored by KM Media Group, business advisors and accountants Kreston Reeves and law firm Brachers.

Those making the list will be invited to a special breakfast presentation at the Tudor Park Marriott Hotel, near Maidstone, in November, while the full list will be published in November both on KentOnline and in our newspapers.

Nigel Fright, managing partner at Kreston Reeves, said: “It’s always great to see Kent businesses doing well and the USP of the MegaGrowth 50 awards is that unlike traditional business awards, it picks up fantastic success stories of businesses who don’t ever shout about it.

"Kreston Reeves has been honoured to sponsor MegaGrowth 50 for over 10 years and a part of recognising and awarding Kent and Medway businesses for their growth and making this a great place to do business.

"We are delighted to welcome Brachers this year as our new sponsorship partners of MegaGrowth 50 and look forward to working in collaboration with them on this project.”

Brachers' head of corporate and commercial, James Bullock, added: "This year we’ll be celebrating those who have not only survived but thrived in the face of the recent challenging economic environment.

"As a firm, we love a good success story and we’re lucky to work in a county with so many thriving and entrepreneurial businesses. We’re looking forward to hearing about the achievements of local organisations across Kent and Medway, particularly the hidden gems that MegaGrowth 50 has always been so good at putting in the spotlight.”
