Cartel in fastest growing private companies list

Among its achievements in 2003/2004 was the recruitment of a further 250 staff at its Manchester head office at Exchange Quay, nationwide and Indian operations.

In addition, Cartel has invested in an extra 5000 sq ft premises at Exchange Quay, which represents a significant increase to its current office space in Greater Manchester.

Cartel Managing Director and founder Carl Wright said: " We are absolutely thrilled to be ranked among the top 100 fastest growing businesses in the UK. This has been a fantastic year for Cartel and this recognition is extremely fulfilling, both for myself and for my team. This is also a massive announcement for our New Partners who we will be working with during 2005. We will be announcing shortly an additional New Partner with whom we aim to build on our current success by scaling even greater heights with Cartel in 2005."

Andrea Brammer, head of recruitment at Cartel, added: " It is indeed fantastic for all of our staff to receive such wonderful recognition for their relentless hard work and 100% customer focus. We could not be where we are today without our team, and I look forward to recruiting staff of equal calibre and determination in the coming year. This is a very public pat on the back for all!"
