nectere listed in the Financial Times Future 100

nectere has been announced as one of the Financial Times’ top 100 UK companies listed in the FT Future 100 report. The Leap has worked with the Financial Times to list high-growth businesses that are shaping the future of their industry and contributing positively to society and their community.

The criteria for the selection was tight with revenue targets, requirements to drive and make an impact on their industry as well as a proven track record of diversity and an ambition for growth.

The inclusion in the report sees nectere entering its third report for the Financial Times and Mike O’Reilly, operations director, has commented on the changing nature of the business:

To be included in this report is a huge achievement, to be included in the reports with 1,000 finalists was substantial for us, but to make a 100 and be announced as one of the businesses shaping the future is a milestone for the business.

The detail in the report explains the type of company that we are, and we believe we need to be. The report categorises businesses based on their ‘impact’ and ours was diversity. In an evolving market where equality is more prominent than ever, we are proud to be featured for our business success as well as our workforce.

The report announced that 61% of our workforce are women – this is among the highest in the report. We’re passionate about developing individuals and working with people who are passionate about changing the lives of independent dealers. Along with the development of our technologies, services and systems, it’s hardly surprising that we have been named a ‘diverse’ company.

The inclusion in the report is momentous not only for nectere, but the for the dealers that partner with us. To have a model as strong, diverse and reliable as the nectere model ensures that we are robust enough to change in a challenging market place and provide the best services and tools to allow our Dealers to grow their businesses profitably.”
