The Business Magazine asked the CEOs and leaders of the Thames Valley SME 100 Growth index which celebrates the region’s high-growth small and medium-sized enterprises, to share their experience of managing a company in 2021. We asked Dominic Phillips, CEO of Datum Datacentres, the following three questions:
Datum Datacentres was listed at number 45, among the top 50 companies on The Business Magazine’s Thames Valley SME100 Growth index this year. The Farnborough-based data management company had a turnover of 4.6%, which is 3.8% higher than the previous year.
Dominic Phillips: Signing new deals, raising more finance and building capacity in a period of such uncertainty.
Dominic Phillips: Keeping the business growing at 20% and seeing both the team and clients react so positively to the challenges posed by the pandemic.
Dominic Phillips: Grow through the pandemic, make the relationships between the team and the clients even stronger, and secure the future of the business by driving up profit.
Datum Datacentres is a new entry to the Thames Valley SME100 Growth index in 2021. To qualify for the listing, businesses need to be based in the Thames Valley, have a turnover of no less than £1 million and no more than £20m, and to have grown their turnover significantly in the past year.
All Thames Valley SME 100 Growth members are now invited to enter the nominations to this year’s awards, which will recognise outstanding achievements in six categories.
