The entire group sales revenue hit $240 million in 2013, surpassing its sales goals and setting new internal records for sales growth and job creation.

Gibbs S3, CEO, Farida Gibbs commented, “It has been an outstanding year for the team in the UK and to surpass our goals and achieve this incredible growth is a true demonstration of the teams passion to deliver results to all of our customers and outperform some of our largest competitors. Our industry analysts projected a 5% growth for our markets, but we managed to increase revenues by a remarkable 35%. Despite reports that 2012 was a mixed year, our customers stuck with us and looked for alternative IT staffing solutions to which we were able to deliver consistently. The Solutions team developed flexible resourcing models which were bespoke for each customer and proved to be a cost effective solution – inventive and forward thinking. We took market share from some of our largest competitors because we were creative and innovative which won us many Statements of Work and fixed price opportunities – all awarded based on merit”.

Farida Gibbs expects the UK operation, Gibbs S3, to continue its growth in 2014 with an increased customer base and international customers expanding their footprint. “It’s rewarding to help people back into work, serve our communities and uphold our core values in the way we do business. Integrity, respect, commitment, charities and having fun is why we have been extremely successful. We do well when we do good. I would like to thank all of our customers, employees and consultants who have worked with us over the last 12 months. We very much look forward to 2014 and supporting our customers in all of their global locations.”.
