Coast Digital is ranked 17th in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for 2007. Announced today the Deloitte Fast 50 provides a dynamic snapshot of the UK’s high tech industry. Within the list Coast Digital is the highest placed digital marketing agency in the South East. Ranking is determined by revenue growth.

James Frost, managing director of Coast Digital said:

“We’re absolutely delighted. Making the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 shows that we are at the cutting edge of digital marketing; we create winning solutions for our clients through the use of innovative technology.”

He continues: “We continue to see a huge shift in advertising spend from traditional media – TV, radio, direct mail and print – into digital where campaigns can be tracked to an extremely granular level. Digital is the core area of growth for our clients with many of them seeing their largest gains through digital channels.”

James Frost is a true entrepreneur. Having set the business up just five years ago, Coast Digital has evolved from a web design company to a full service interactive agency and now works with a wide range of clients, including big name brands like Office Shoes and Slendertone.

2007 has been a landmark year with the launch of a new website to complement Coast Digital’s growth and maturity, and a brace of new clients including Swatch and La Senza.

The 2007 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 reflects the exciting state of the UK technology sector. Simon Kerton-Johnson, a partner in Deloitte’s Technology, Media and Telecommunications practice said:

“These UK technology companies have shown true entrepreneurship. They have identified genuine market needs, developed innovative solutions and persevered when times were tough. Great ideas, persistent people and enabling technology continue to be a winning formula for the UK Technology sector.”
