dB Broadcast recognised in national excellence listing


UK leading system integrator dB Broadcast has been ranked at number 19 in the annual The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 listing, published in the Business section of the paper yesterday. This recognition heralds dB as one of the 100 top performing technology companies in the UK.

The 18th Tech Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s private technology, media and telecoms companies with the fastest growing sales. This is the second time that dB has been featured in the listing, having previously made it in 2013.

The Tech Track 100 is sponsored by Hiscox, Barclays, BDO, BGF and N+1 Singer, and compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.

“We are naturally delighted at this recognition in the prestigious Tech Track listing”, said David Bird, MD of dB Broadcast. “Our dedicated team works very hard on some extremely challenging projects, often high profile and under great time pressure. Recognition of our success is very satisfying.”

Steve McGerr, head of direct commercial at Hiscox Insurance, said: “Technology businesses in Cambridgeshire are thriving thanks to the fearlessness and determination of those that run them. We have great admiration for the talented entrepreneurs that make up the companies on this year’s Tech Track 100.”

The 18th annual Tech Track 100 awards will be formally presented in London in November.
