Joint Managing Director of CDM, Mark Bulmer, welcomed CDM’s inclusion 2015’s Fastest 50 as an acknowledgment of the determination and hard work of CDM’s dedicated staff.

“Our biggest strength is our people. Without their determination, skill and work ethic our business could not grow at the current rate. We’re also very proud of our ability to retain and develop staff in an industry which has a notorious “revolving door” reputation.  Almost a third of CDM’s staff have been with the business for over a decade – which is a key differentiator between CDM and our competition. Our clients enjoy consistent and increasingly effective service and our low staff turnover ensures we retain experience which continues to develop year on year.”
