Independent property investment agency North Property Group have been included on Ward Hadaway’s Prestigious Yorkshire Fastest 50 list for 2023! The prestigious Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 Awards, in association with The Yorkshire Post, celebrate growth, innovation and the commercial achievements of Yorkshire businesses.

Based on financial data filed with Companies House, the list ranks the fifty best performing independent companies which have consistently increased turnover over the past three financial years, whilst remaining profitable. North Property Group was ranked 6th overall in the list, coming 2nd in the small business category.

The Ward Hadaway Fastest 50 Awards were launched back in 1998, though the Yorkshire region’s award was launched in 2011 along with The Yorkshire Post, ‘to honour and celebrate the region’s best and brightest enterprises.’

Every year, the 50 fastest growing businesses from the Yorkshire region are identified based on turnover growth over a three-year period. These businesses are ranked in the annual Fastest 50 list, jointly telling a story of continuous financial growth in tough times through innovative methods, efficiency and skills.

As one of the fastest 50 growing business in the region, North Property Group have been included on this list, part of the Fastest Growing Small Businesses category. As well as this, the overall winner – the Fastest Growing Business in Yorkshire for 2023 was announced. The ceremony will took place in Leeds on Friday 3rd March.

NPG has shown great growth since its inception in 2017 in terms of finance, in terms of staff, and also in terms of how many developments and cities the company now covers and sells.

Emma Digby, who is Executive Partner at Ward Hadaway’s Leeds Office, said, “I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate North Property Group alongside all the companies in the Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 list for 2023 for their outstanding achievements.

“The companies in the Fastest 50 demonstrate that real, genuine growth is happening. Yorkshire businesses are thriving because they’ve not been afraid to go against the grain, take risks or follow their instincts at a time when uncertainty is the norm. They’ve been brave, they’ve been bold and, as a result, rewarded through continued growth.

“This year’s Fastest 50 list, as always, boasts many management teams with an unwavering passion to succeed who have created high growth, profitable businesses. It’s this spirit, and the business success that it creates, that we are delighted to celebrate.”
