Champions reach milestone

Bondholder Champions (UK) plc is celebrating after recruiting its 50th new member of staff this year and being recognised for its astonishing growth.

The family-owned firm has made an incredible leap in the list of the top 200 fastest-growing businesses in the East Midlands – moving from 197th place last year to 12th this year and will officially unveil its new £1m media centre at a ceremony in November.

“It really has been a very successful year so far for the company,” said Champions’ managing director Matthew Hayes. “There is currently much uncertainty in the wider business community over Brexit and the current political situation but we are continuing to show strong growth.

“Our results-focused approach has been very popular in previous economically challenging periods and we expect the same over the next year or so, as clients review their approach and demand more return from their investment.”

Champions, based in Costock, near Loughborough, works with a range of clients across its 10 areas of expertise, which include digital and marketing services, web design, public relations, social media support, publishing, advertising, managing events and working with celebrities.

“There are exciting times ahead for us as we recruit more staff and use our new digital media centre to help facilitate our rapid growth across these disciplines,” said Matthew. “And to see us now listed in 12th place in the region’s top businesses really is the icing on the cake.”
