Napchi states that the fact that HIRO Media was honored as an industry leader at such an important time within the industry itself is extremely exciting for the company.
David Halstead, of Deloitte UK, who was the partner in charge of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA program points out that the combination of HIRO Media’s ranking on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA along with its massive 22219 growth rate in the five year period considered show their commitment to furthering innovation and to progression of the industry as a whole.
