Smyle forecasts 50% turnover growth in 2020

Agency features on the Sunday Times International Track 200 and predicts big things for the year ahead.

Creative agency Smyle has appeared on The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 for the second year running and forecasts that it will achieve 50% turnover growth this year.  

Smyle’s exports have more than doubled in the last three years, resulting in its place at number 92 on the International Track 200. 

The Sunday Times list “ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales, measured over their latest two years of available accounts.”  

Smyle featured on the list for the first time last year and also on The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 in December 2018. 

The company is forecasting 50% growth in turnover from £26m in its 2018-19 financial year to around £40m in 2019-20. 

“Last year was an incredible year for us, and this latest accolade demonstrates our team’s hard work and commitment to excellence,” said group executive director Rick Stainton.

“To further support this we have invested in 30 new roles across our various client, strategy, content, production and operational teams.” 

CEO Keith O’Loughlin added: “We are a fast-growing team of creative thinkers, with global clients and high ambition. Being listed again in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 recognises our growth and the trust our clients put in the work we do.”
