SRG named one of Sunday Times’ HSBC International Track 200 list 2017.


The SR Group is ranked 116 on The Sunday Times’ HSBC International Track 200 list 2017.

The SR Group is delighted to be recognised for its continued international growth by being placed on The Sunday Times’ HSBC International Track 200 list. The list, now in its eighth year, ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales over the last two years.

Over the last two years The SR Group has grown exponentially, expanding into the US market and opening new offices within Europe. In January 2016, the firm acquired New York-based Human Resources recruitment consultancy, Maximum Management, allowing it to expand both its own HR recruitment brand Frazer Jones and legal recruitment brand Taylor Root into the US search and recruitment market.

David Buckley, CEO of The SR Group said, “We are extremely pleased to be included in The Sunday Times’ HSBC International Track 200 list 2017 for the first time. The growth we have experienced over the last two years has been exceptional, with annual international sales up by 36%. Following the acquisition of Maximum Management and taking our first steps into the US market, The SR Group can now service our clients and candidates, across all brands, on a truly global basis. In addition, the firm’s growth across Europe with new office openings, as well as an increased ability to service markets across the Middle East and Asia from our three offices in those regions, has resulted in an unapparelled period of success in the firm’s history”.

Within Europe, The SR Group has opened offices in Amsterdam, Milan and Frankfurt in the past two years to further enhance our European offering.

Michael Illert, Partner of The SR Group and Head of our European business commented “Continental Europe is a diverse and exciting market for The SR Group. We service clients and candidates from large multinationals to smaller businesses with an international focus. Our boutique offering is unique in the market especially if you take our international reach into consideration. We do believe that our clients require highly specialised recruitment services for niche skills on a global basis. Hence we work very hard to be global specialists with local expertise.”

The SR Group continues to invest in its ambitious international expansion, both in terms of growth within existing markets and exploration of new geographical opportunities.
