The ranking features companies that have demonstrated innovative strategies, sound management practices and marketplace vision that has driven them to become high-growth leaders.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards is one of Ireland’s foremost technology award programmes.

Ross Murray, CEO, Welltel: “We are thrilled to be named on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 list for the 8th year running. To be so consistently named as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Ireland since 2014, and even climbing higher in the rankings, is a testament to the dedication of our entire team, especially in the last year during such a challenging time for business. I would like to thank the team for their part in getting us to this position.
“We succeed based on our strategic focus on delivering best client experience in business communications, which underpins our position as Ireland’s leading communications and IT services provider for businesses.”

“From enabling us to better look after ourselves, to providing critical technologies to keep businesses connected to customers, for example, these companies have shown us the creativity, resilience, and commitment to driving progress that is present in the indigenous technology sector in Ireland.”
