“LCVR are one of the “unsung heroes” of the UK car & van rental market. A business-to-business brand, we work behind the scenes to support our customers – who are typically well-known regional brands - by supplying a wide choice of vehicles at competitive weekly rates, underpinned by helpful, knowledgeable staff and professional fleet support”, said Sales & Marketing Director, Owain Price.
LCVR Managing Director, John Ryan, said: “It is both a surprise and an honour to be included in 2016’s report, and particularly pleasing as 2016 is LCVR’s 10th anniversary. The cornerstones of our business are people, product and service; this accolade reflects both the capability of the LCVR team and the valued relationships we have with our customers, funders, and both manufacturer & dealer partners.”
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said:
“High growth SMEs are the driving force behind the UK economy, developing the skills, jobs and growth we need. But ambition alone is not enough; their success must be highlighted and their growth properly supported with appropriate finance. That’s why today’s event is so important: demonstrating the strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies to support these inspiring businesses.
“Today’s celebration is fundamental to London Stock Exchange’s core, the need to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and create an entrepreneurship revolution.”
Writing in the publication, The Rt. Hon. George Osborne MP said:
“UK high-growth businesses are leading the charge in rebuilding our economy. These companies are the backbone of the British economy. They create high-quality, well paid jobs, innovate and drive economic growth. This government fully understands the need to support ambitious entrepreneurs and ensure they can access the finance they need to grow.
“We have held the steadfast belief that –alongside deficit reduction – nurturing entrepreneurs, creating jobs, supporting hard-working families and keeping taxes low would get the UK economy back on track. Our measures to increase access to finance for business and encourage more investment have had a transformative effect on our economy.”
