Camara came in at number 45 in the Deloitte Fast 50

Camara Education is delighted to announce that we ranked 45th in the 2014 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Ireland. Rankings are based on average percentage revenue growth over five years.

Camara’s CEO, John Fitzsimons, credits the demand for technology, the support of donors and the outstanding efforts of staff and volunteers with the company’s growth over the past five years. He said, “As evidenced by making the Deloitte Fast 50 list for the fourth consecutive year, our growth in recent years has been phenomenal. This is due to the huge demands for ICT technology in the countries in which we operate, along with support from donors in supplying funds and computer equipment to us. These two factors, allied to the magnificent work being done by our many staff and volunteers, means that we have doubled our turnover in 2014, from approximately €2.5m last year to over €5m which means we can significantly scale up our operations. This is just the beginning, there is much more to come.”

The Fast 50 programme, now in its fifteenth year in Ireland, ranks the fastest growing technology companies in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. This year, there are 13 companies from Northern Ireland in the ranking. The average growth rate of the Fast 50 companies named in this year’s ranking is 276%.

Announcing the winners of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 programme, Richard Howard, Partner with Deloitte, Dublin said: “I am continually enthused by the hunger, drive and capacity to innovate that the winning companies, as demonstrated by the close competition in this year’s ranking. The Fast 50 awards really do demonstrate the very best of this important sector, and we are delighted to be able to recognise them with these awards.”
