Brighton, United Kingdom, 2009/05/21 - Email marketing specialist Pure is the 18th fastest growing new media company in Europe, according to Media Momentum’s Top 50 awards announced in central London last Thursday night.
Pure is the only email marketing service provider in the league table. The company recorded a compound annual growth rate of 100.5% over two years.
Media Momentum, run by technology investment bank GP Bullhound, is an annual league table which recognises the achievements of the most innovative and fastest growing digital media companies in Europe. The initiative is supported by media partners The Telegraph and industry trade magazine New Media Age, and backed by sponsors Olswang and Action Capital Partners.
“The competition was huge and to be recognised as the only email marketing provider in the table was particularly impressive,” said Marc Munier, MD of Pure. “Pure has continued to grow rapidly over the last two years; our client list now includes Seatwave, RightMove, LA Fitness and the FT. 2009 has already seen some big announcements and we will be unveiling new innovations over the next few months.”
Pure was founded in 2001 and first appeared in Media Momentum’s league table in 2007.
“The Media Momentum Top 50 league table has become a key barometer for the health of the digital sector and this year’s impressive results reaffirm the importance of the industry to both the UL and EU economy,” said Manish Madhvani, partner at GP Bullhound. “Competition this year was as tough as ever and for Pure to be honoured is a real achievement. We hope that these awards will provide even greater momentum to our finalists in their respective fields as they continue to develop and grow.”
