An Elstree-based company overcame the recession to be ranked as one of the top 500 companies in the world.

Cyber-Duck, based in High Street, Elstree, is listed on the Deloitte Technology Fast 2012, a ranking of the best technology companies across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The company, which specialises in digital marketing, opened seven years ago and the team competed against leading other leading companies to be named on the prestigious list.

Managing director Danny Bluestone said: “Much of this success is down to the company’s commitment. This achievement goes a long way to recognize the relentless ambition of our fantastic team.”

Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years, during which period Cyber-Duck grew by 280%.
