Global integrated mobile and digital communications business Mobile Interactive Group (MIG) has achieved 64th position in the annual Sunday Times Tech Track 100.
Now in its tenth year, The Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100, compiled by Oxford-based research and networking events company Fast Track, recognises the UK’s fastest growing private technology companies.
MIG’s unprecedented expansion, since launch in May 2004, has seen turnover figures leap from £250k in 2005 to £68m in 2009, representing a growth rate of 26,885% over the past five years. MIG secured the top slot in the Tech Track 100 in 2008.
The business has continued to see strong growth across the group with businesses now placing greater demand on the mobile channel, in particular in the areas of m-commerce, applications and mobile publishing.
Headquartered in London, in the past 18 months MIG also has grown internationally with operations in the US, Canada, Australia and South Africa and invested heavily in its own technology, especially in mobile messaging and payments, application development and mobile enterprise and CRM.
The company has also acquired a mobile marketing business in the North East of the UK, opened a development centre in the South West and doubled the size of its London team to 160 employees.
Companies within MIG Group include mobile advertising firm, 4th Screen Advertising, digital solutions agency, Jigsaw, experiential mobile design and marketing agency New Toy, mobile interactive solutions firm MIT, mobile messaging and CRM firm Piri and mobile publishing and applications business, Kilrush.

Barry Houlihan, CEO and founder of MIG said: “Gaining this ranking in the Times Tech Track is a great accolade and reflects the MIG strategy to invest heavily in our own technology and grow the company internationally.
"We've also achieved this growth despite the economic downturn and some major developments within the mobile industry. None of this would have been possible without the hard work of all of the MIG staff, from the management team down. I'm really proud of our staff and the culture we have developed within the business."
