We’re very proud to be part of a vibrant and innovative business community here in Essex, and this year we were pleased to be included on Grant Thornton’s ‘Essex Limited’ list of the 100 most successful businesses in Essex. The list highlights the largest companies located and managed from within Essex, and includes some highly innovative organisations, at the forefront of their sectors.

The launch of this year’s list was covered by the BBC in their ‘Look East’ regional current affairs programme. As the launch event directly preceded the first Autumn budget, Cloudfm MD Chris Gallop was asked to give his thoughts on the forthcoming statement from the Chancellor. The feature also shone the spotlight on Cloudfm as a standout success story in our region and industry, and highlighted some of the high-street and household-name brands that we work with.

Further to the interview that was featured on Look East, Chris was also able to deliver a more extensive briefing to the BBC on Cloudfm’s ongoing success, and the challenges facing fast-growing businesses in the current economic and political environment.

With Chancellor Phil Hammond poised to deliver his budget statement to parliament, Chris stressed the need for the government to focus on training, skills and education, and to promote the conditions in which companies can continue to create highly-skilled, well-paying jobs.

As Cloudfm continues to grow, we’ll bring you more of our work with the local and national media. In the meantime, you can watch Chris’ interview in the clip above. You can also read the East Anglian Daily Times’ coverage of the Essex Limited event here.
