Fifth Ring founder and chief executive Ian Ord said: “These wins represent a significant display of trust in our people and the undoubted skills they possess, and we are looking forward to continuing to build on this success.
“I am particularly pleased with the business we have won from outside the verticals we have historically been strong in, which is further evidence of our international growth.
“We have ambitious plans to grow our offices around the world, and this success will play a crucial role in realising this vision.”
“More work means more people, and we are delighted to have welcomed several new colleagues in each of our offices, and look forward to welcoming more new additions to the team in the months ahead.”

Mr Ord added: “Our emergency response service is recognised as one of the best in the industry, and we are delighted to grow it further and look forward to continuing on that upward trajectory.”
