Exent Named in AFR’s Fast100

Joe Fazzari, Exent
We’re thrilled to announce that Exent has been recognised as Australia’s 33rd fastest-growing company in the prestigious Australian Financial Review's Fast 100 list for 2023. This significant accolade underscores our company's rapid growth and commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions to our clients.

Expanding Horizons, Driving Innovation

The inclusion in the AFR Fast 100 list is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team at Exent.

Our Managing Director, Joe Fazzari, has expressed immense pride in this achievement, emphasising the critical role played by our consultants and the invaluable support from our clients and partners. He says this recognition reflects not just our financial success but also the impact of our innovative approaches in the technology consultancy sector.

“We are far more values-driven and culturally-aligned with clients, avoiding the ‘robot-like’ stereotype of traditional consultants. We move faster, with leaner, more expert teams, and our work is typically more detailed and actionable. We hate the glossy slide deck.”

Exent’s rapid growth can be attributed to its innovative approach to consulting, particularly in areas such as compliance, process optimisation, and technology implementation. The company has doubled its sales over the past 12 months, with significant contract wins in financial services, aged care, and government sectors.

Despite the challenging economic landscape, Exent remains poised for success, buoyed by its deep expertise and unwavering commitment to delivering tangible results for its clients.

A New Era of Consulting

Exent’s rise comes at a time when Australian companies are increasingly turning to boutique management consultancies for solutions. With a focus on deeper expertise, innovation, and a radical client ethos, boutique consultancies like Exent are reshaping the consulting landscape.

The company’s unique blend of technical expertise, business acumen, and a ‘more human, less consultant’ approach has set it apart in an industry plagued by conflicts of interest and outdated practices. Exent’s disruptive delivery model and commitment to delivering actionable insights have positioned it as a challenger brand among Australia’s fastest-growing companies.

What’s Next?

As we look to the future, Exent is setting its sights on further expansion, particularly targeting the Sydney and Melbourne markets. This move is part of our broader strategy to leverage our recent successes and strengthen our leadership position within the technology consultancy space.

We’re excited about the prospect of growing our team and extending our services to meet and exceed the evolving needs of our clients across these new geographies.

We’re also committed to driving positive change within the consulting industry and delivering exceptional value to our clients. With our focus on governance, risk management, and operational excellence, we are well-equipped to navigate the complexities of today’s business world.

We extend our congratulations to everyone at Exent for this remarkable achievement. Here’s to continuing our journey of success and innovation in the years ahead!
