The cloud HR software specialist was awarded the accolade in recognition of its rapid growth – 1,150% over the last five years – and ambitious vision for future expansion.

Now in their sixth year, the WCIT Awards celebrate the most successful technology entrepreneurs across the UK and Ireland, and are supported by industry-leading sponsors including Sage, Silverpeak, TechMarketView and Smith & Williamson.

“I am delighted that the hard work of the Fairsail team has been acknowledged with such a prestigious award” said Adam Hale, Fairsail’s CEO. “Fairsail has scaled quickly to become one of the largest tech companies in South East England and is quickly rising to prominence in the global market too, so it’s brilliant to see that achievement recognized. We have ambitious plans for the future and aim to provide further innovation for customers.”

Fairsail has scaled rapidly, with headcount at the company having tripled since 2014. Increasing demand from international customers, resulted in a US office being opened in Orlando, Florida last summer, in addition to an office in San Francisco, California.  Following significant investment this year, Fairsail has aggressive growth plans over the next five years.

Richard Holway, Chairman of TechMarketView, remarked upon the “superb quality” of the award winners, commenting that “they truly are Great Tech Companies. Regardless of the current ‘external difficulties’ the future could be bright with tech companies like these”.
