Maximum Media has been officially ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, and the fastest growing media company in the UK and Ireland, by the Financial Times for the second year running.

The publication released its FT1000 annual report yesterday, which included eight Irish businesses. Based on revenue growth alone, the report ranks Maximum Media as the third fastest growing Irish business in Europe, having achieved company revenue growth of 324% between 2013 and 2016.

Maximum Media Founder, Niall McGarry, said: “We are immensely proud to be on the FT1000 for a second year in a row. It demonstrates the consistent level and pace of growth we’ve maintained in the last few years. To be in the top 1000 on a list that encompasses all of the 30 million plus registered business in Europe is an incredible achievement from our team, and as we continue to reinvest back into the business each year I am confident that we will see Maximum Media moving even further up these rankings.”

Most recently, Maximum Media carried out major renovations of its Dublin premises in Fumbally to enable continued growth, creative thinking and collaboration. The revamp includes additional edit, studio and brainstorm areas accessible to clients and partners. In the past 12 months Maximum Media has also invested in further data and analytics tools – a DMP via Permutive, Tubular labs and Crowdtangle.

The business has also built out its senior management team (pictured above), with key hires made across brand strategy, planning, analytics and general management.Maximum Media’s UK arm, JOE Media, has just opened the doors of its brand new 6000 square feet HQ in London, which includes state-of-the-art studios. It has also recently opened a new office in Manchester as part of its regional UK expansion. The UK business has more than doubled its headcount, to over 60 people, in the last six months.
