Sales acceleration consultancy, durhamlane, is celebrating the end of a record-breaking year for growth.
The company has increased its delivered revenue by 130% and order intake by 148% compared to calendar year 2017, having won contracts with the likes of PwC, Deloitte, InsideSales.com, HappyOrNot and closer to home, renewing projects with North-East stalwarts Home Group, NBS and TSG.
durhamlane has also increased the number of customers that have purchased two or more of its three sales service offerings (Sales Outsourcing, Training and Recruitment) by 15%.
Having moved to new state-of-the-art offices and embarked on a recruitment drive, durhamlane has also increased headcount by 26%, and plans to create at least 15 new jobs in 2019.
In a bold move following Brexit uncertainty, durhamlane is currently planning to open an office in Europe this year to service the growing demand of its services in EMEA.
“In a time of declining business confidence and uncertainty, we’re extremely proud to have ‘bucked the trend’ and maintained the exponentially growth we have become accustomed to,” said Richard Lane, co-founder and managing partner of durhamlane. “It just goes to show what a strong company culture, dedicated team and a focus on delivering top class customer-service and partnership can achieve.”
“Having funded the business entirely from our own pockets, it’s fantastic to see our company grow, winning work from global blue chips and high growth scale ups and creating new and exciting jobs in our home region and overseas,” said Lee Durham, co-founder and managing partner of durhamlane. “We’re immensely proud of what the team has achieved – they really do practice what they preach.”
