16th September 2013
Zoopla Property Group (ZPG), owner of leading property websites Zoopla.co.uk and PrimeLocation.com, has been named as the 6th fastest-growing private technology, media and telecoms (TMT) business in Britain in this year’s prestigious Sunday Times’ Tech Track 100 list.
The list, which is published annually, ranks Britain’s leading private TMT companies by sales growth over the past three years and this year listed Zoopla Property Group in sixth place and as the only property-related business included on the list.
Meanwhile, ZPG along with its founder & CEO Alex Chesterman, are shortlisted for numerous high-profile awards at the moment. ZPG has been named a finalist for both ‘Company of the Year’ (Growing Business Awards) and ‘Europe’s Most Exciting Company of the Year’ (Investor All Stars Awards), and Alex Chesterman is currently in the running for ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ in both the National Business Awards and Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.
This recognition reflects the staggering growth that ZPG has shown since its launch only five years ago with 63% of online house hunters in the UK now using the company’s websites each month to search for a property.
Alex Chesterman, Founder & CEO of Zoopla Property Group said,: “We’re extremely proud of the growth that we’ve achieved and the awards that we’ve been nominated for. They are a welcome reward for the hard work and dedication of our team. We are of course delighted to be featured in the top 10 of this year’s Sunday Times Tech Track list, amongst some other very exciting tech and media businesses.”
