ramarketing powers into top 10 of the 50 fastest growing companies in the North East

Today we’re celebrating after being officially ranked in the top 10 of the Ward Hadaway North East Fastest 50 Awards for 2022. 

ramarketing was ranked 9th after several years of strong growth which has seen the business grow to a 75+ team with offices in Newcastle, Manchester, and Boston in the USA and investment from renowned private equity firm NorthEdge in April 2022. 

As a full-service marketing firm, which supports clients operating in the high-growth pharmaceutical and biotech markets in North America, Europe, and Asia, ramarketing is regarded as one of the fastest-growing life sciences agencies in the world. 

Agency Founder and Global President Raman Sehgal started the agency from his spare room in Gateshead in 2009. He attended the Ward Hadaway Fastest 50 awards event as the keynote speaker and spoke about his journey and how North East firms can create a culture that cultivates a dedicated, driven team.

He said: “We’re proud to make the top 10 amid such fast-growing businesses  – and we’re the only integrated marketing agency to make the list! Since making the decision to focus on our niche in the life sciences we have enjoyed exceptional growth. Looking at how far we have come, I am very grateful for the team we have and very proud of our achievements. 

“To be recognized here in the North East, amongst so many amazing local businesses, is very special. We’re growing both in the UK and globally but are extremely proud of where it all started – our North East roots and ‘canny’ values will always be one of the agency’s ‘superpowers’. 

“Despite a more challenging economic outlook, our growth does not look like it’s slowing down with 2022 set to be another record year. The NorthEdge investment, our strong pharmaceutical industry expertise, and our dedicated team have allowed us to drive forward our growth strategy with more exciting expansion plans to be announced in 2023.”

This latest award follows ramarketing’s success in The Prolific North Top 50 PR Agencies 2022 when it was ranked as the number three PR agency in the North of England. In 2021 the agency was named PR Week’s fastest-growing agency in its Top 150 UK PR consultancies list.  

Damien Charlton a Partner at Ward Hadaway’s Newcastle Office, said, 

“The prestigious Ward Hadaway North East Fastest 50 Awards celebrate growth, innovation and the commercial achievements of North East businesses.”

Based on financial data filed with Companies House, the list ranks the fifty best-performing privately-owned companies which have consistently increased turnover over the past three financial years, whilst remaining profitable.
