LONDON, January 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Since co-founding FC Exchange in 2005, entrepreneurs Nick Fullerton and Martin Steenkamp, have driven exceptional growth. The business has grown by 230% in the last two years alone. Their May 2016 year end financials are expected to show a similar growth trajectory, as FC Exchange expands its global reach yet again, including capturing payment flows in Asia.
The prestigious Best Company Award 2016 reaffirms the ethos upon which FC Exchange was founded; attracting and retaining the best talent to deliver the very best customer service. The survey undertaken across the business, which has four global locations, received outstanding engagement results. The team has grown by 80% in the last 12 months alone and staff retention levels are above the industry average, a testament to their approach.
FC Exchange is now in the midst of robust growth plans, involving strengthening its position in the UK, utilising their local presence and licensing in South Africa, while continuing to expand into a number of new industry sectors and territories. Most notably, they will be employing their E-money licence to bolster the E-Commerce business arm, which is set to challenge the mainstream and somewhat "vanilla" payment providers. The recent formation of FC Exchange Markets, headed up by newly appointed Greg Smith, will support a broader derivative product set to be offered in 2016.
The company has been particularly successful in attracting exceptionally high calibre individuals who share the same views of the FX and international payments sectors and most importantly, the vision and growth plans the founders have for FC Exchange. Aran Brown recently joined the team to support the founders in navigating their way through aggressive growth plans. Aran brings over 10 years of strategic and corporate development from within the industry and has started to bring a broader team in to execute plans for triple digit growth.
Commenting on the new appointments and its growth trajectory Nick Fullerton, CEO, said "Investing significantly in people has been a core part of our success, allowing us to deliver exceptional customer service. Our new appointments, which we will build upon in the coming months, are essential to drive the business forward. We've been very fortunate in achieving such high growth; a solid team has delivered the customer service which has engendered high numbers of new customers and referrals, which is how we are able to transact circa £100m per month now. We are looking forward to continuing our sustainable growth plans, as we move into our newly expanded office space. We're now fully geared up to grow our core business and acquire market share in complimentary new product lines".
