Andrew Hirsch, John Brown's CEO, said:
"Being listed in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 is a great honour. We work with some of the largest brands in the UK, South Africa, China and now the Middle East.
"Every national and international client we work with demands the highest standards of customer communications in order to foster loyalty and increase revenue. We have always had a reputation for creative excellence in the UK, and are very proud to have been recognised for our ongoing international success, which is due to taking our unique and successful combination of high-quality content creation and strategy into international territories.
"We have worked very hard over the last five years to establish John Brown Media outside the UK. Today, more than 30 per cent of our business comes from international markets and we expect this to grow to 50 per cent over the next three years."
John Brown's clients include: Waitrose and John Lewis in the UK; Pick n Pay, Edgars and Discovery in South Africa; Park n Shop, Shangri-La Hotels and Pfizer in Hong Kong; and now Spinneys and Emirates in Dubai.
