Transversal opening US office as sales soar
Cambridge web technology business Transversal has revealed a surge in sales and unprecedented international growth from its UK headquarters after a transformational 2013.
Spun out of Cambridge University’s Mathematics department in 2000 by Davin Yap, the company has ramped up significantly in what Yap described as a milestone year.
Transversal has expanded operations to Germany, the US and further across Australia. And continuing its UK success, the company now has over 100 blue-chip clients, has doubled revenue in the last three years to $10 million and increased the number of employees to 75.
Transversal revenue has exceeded 30 per cent year on year growth since 2010 and the forecast for 2014 is equally strong with the new business pipeline, and opening of a US office expected to further accelerate the rate of growth for the next fiscal year.
The company is also playing an important role in maths education. It launched a nationwide maths competition with British double gold Olympic medal winner, Sarah Ayton, to get 16-18 year olds across the country excited about maths.
The six winners of the competition - including one from the Leys school in Cambridge - won a sailing lesson with Sarah followed by a full day's sailing from Southampton to Cowes as part of Transversal's Charity Cup!
