Highwood named one of the UK’s most inspiring companies by the London Stock Exchange

Highwood has been named in the London Stock Exchange Group’s (LSEG) ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2018’ report; the fifth annual edition of the groundbreaking series that identifies the UK’s fastest growing SMEs and high growth businesses.

The news of LSEG’s recognition of our continuing success story follows the news that we have been shortlisted for two South Coast Property Awards categories, including Fast Rising Property Business of the Year and Development of the Year for our high profile North Stoneham Park project in Eastleigh.

Inclusion in the eagerly anticipated LSEG report reflects our enviable position within the Engineering & Construction sector, which topped the top five industries represented and was followed by IT and Financial Services. This news will undoubtedly give SME leaders new confidence in the UK’s economic potential in both traditional and more innovative business sectors.

‘SMEs are the heartbeat of our economy, driving jobs and growth,’ revealed Nikhil Rathi, CEO of London Stock Exchange plc. ‘Their dynamism plays a huge part in the UK's ability to innovate and export, and, in doing so, creates high-quality jobs for the next generation.’

Highwood Managing Director, Guy Hayward, expressed his pride in his teams’ outstanding achievements:

‘To be announced as finalist in two renowned awards categories and named one of the UK’s most inspiring companies by the London Stock Exchange in the same month is a remarkable accomplishment,’ he said. ‘The LSEG report alone is a glowing commendation of our progress and we’re proud to stand alongside many of the country’s most dynamic SMEs in a report that highlights the challenges we face and the trends that will shape our economy in the future. It’s reassuring to see that the construction industry is leading the way when it comes to identifying opportunity and realising growth. These are, indeed, exciting times for both Highwood and the housebuilding sector.’
