Last Wednesday night Jeff Yang and Leanne Lyons from E-Web Marketing along with their web development partner Angelo Triandos from VisionTech Digital attended this years 20th Anniversary of the BRW Fast 100 cocktail party held in Melbourne.
With over 3,000 applicants this year and stringent acceptance criteria, it was certainly the most competitive BRW Fast 100 to date and a huge achievement for any company worthy enough to even make it into the top 100 list. The venue chosen for event was ‘Comme’ located in the heart of Melbourne CBD and the evening kicked off at 7pm with the announcement of the top 10 companies to make the Fast 100 list. With all fingers and toes crossed we ambitiously kept all ears out for an announcement of “E-Web Marketing” alas our name wasn’t called out for the top 10 however we managed to achieve a top 50 ranking by placing 43rd in our first BRW Fast 100 début. The entire team at E-Web Marketing were elated to hear of our achievement as it was confirmation that all of our hard work over the years was recognised and had paid off as we were the only online marketing agency that made it onto the BRW Fast 100 list this year.
The IT sector was certainly the most competitive with 28 companies out of the 100 heavily involved in Information Technology followed closely by property and business services which made up a further 26. This number dropped to 11 for those in retail trade, 6 in construction, 5 in communications and education, 4 in finance and insurance, 2 for Heath and community along with manufacturing, mining and wholesale. The remaining applicants in accommodation, cafes and restaurants, energy, products, publishing, sports and recreation, transport & storage and wholesale trade all made up the rest of the numbers.
Each of the top BRW Fast 100 applicants received an official BRW certificate with their placing on the Fast 100 to commemorate the event and their BRW Fast 100 accolade.
The entire team at E-Web Marketing wishes to congratulate all the successful businesses who made it onto the BRW Fast 100 list for 2009… We hope to see you all again in 2010!
