Billion Dollar Boy is delighted to be named as one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies by the Financial Times, for the second year running. BDB is the first and only influencer marketing agency to be recognised by the FT as one of the 1000 fastest-growing companies in Europe in consecutive years.

The sixth annual edition of the FT Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies was announced on 1st March 2022 in association with Statista, and will be published in a pullout of the FT. It is one of the entrepreneurial world’s most valued league tables, ranking businesses across 31 European territories based on the highest percentage annual growth rate in revenues between 2017 and 2020. 

In a time of adaptation and considerable upheaval, BDB clearly stood out with a +72% compound annual growth rate.

Despite the aftereffects of the pandemic, BDB has continued its exponential growth with the introduction of an integral strategy team, in addition to senior hires and promotions to bolster the business’ creative division. As a result, the agency now boasts over 100 employees across its London, New York and New Orleans offices, up from just 18 employees in 2017. 

Commenting on BDB’s achievement, Thomas Walters, co-founder and CEO, EMEA says: 

“Featuring in the Financial Times’ 1000 for the second year in a row is an honour and a testament to our dedicated team, clients, and partners. We have worked hard over the past year to ensure the business goes from strength to strength, producing meaningful and innovative campaigns that put creators first and draw on their capabilities from the get-go. 

“This year, the UK influencer marketing industry is forecast to account for 80,000-110,000 jobs, equal to roughly £1 billion revenue – and that is expected to reach 140,000 jobs, roughly £2.5-£3 billion revenue by 2023. We are excited to have been recognised as a key player in this space, working with innovative and purpose-driven clients across the fashion, beauty, gaming and FMCG spaces.”
