Leading software engineering and design consultancy Lexicon Digital has achieved an impressive milestone in a tumultuous year with its inclusion in two prestigious award lists, ranking #30 in the 2020 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia Awards and #16 in the CRN Fast50 2020.
The awards come at the end of an exciting year for Lexicon, in which the company has:
- Diversified its service offering to include Strategy, Design, Software and DevOps.
- Grown its headcount by 40%.
- Formed strategic partnerships with Amazon Web Services & Mulesoft.
- Moved into a brand-new, modern headquarters in Bourke Street, Melbourne.
Both awards recognise the fastest-growing Australian technology companies based upon year-on-year revenue growth. Lexicon achieved 226% growth from 2018 to 2020; a remarkable achievement given the difficult economic conditions and workplace restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deloitte Tech Fast 50 Lead, Josh Tanchel, commented on this story of growth during a crisis:
“Despite the extraordinary circumstances we’re living through in 2020, so many companies in the Australian tech industry are continuing to experience growth … as we know, the industry is built on resilience, grit and determination, and the ability to quickly adapt, innovate and problem solve in ever-changing circumstances is a natural habitat for founders and start-ups – thriving through challenge is in their DNA. As always, the companies on the Tech Fast 50 list this year have shown incredible leadership, agility, foresight, passion and perseverance.”
“Resilience” was highlighted by both Deloitte and CRN as the key attribute shared by all the organisations included in the Fast 50 lists, along with decisiveness, commitment, purpose, energy and positivity.
Lexicon Digital Founder and Managing Director Christopher Carydias attributes the award success to the hard work and dedication of the Lexicon team.
“As a leader, one of my responsibilities is to develop others and to give them the space to realise their potential. As a result, I’ve seen my team grow daily; not only in competency, but in their confidence and drive. It’s these things that have helped achieve such a great result, and for that I’m truly grateful.”
Lexicon’s inclusion in these two awards puts the company alongside inspirationally successful businesses including Zip Co, Raiz, Modibodi and Airtasker.
“We’re very proud to be in such esteemed company”, says Carydias. “There are some truly amazing businesses in this year’s lists. To be mentioned alongside Zip Co and Airtasker is something I never imagined a few short years ago.”
Notably, Lexicon Digital was one of only a few software consultancies to be included in the CRN and Deloitte Fast 50 lists.
