We have grown around 35% this year, and next year we would like to keep this same pace. Nortal currently employs more than eight hundred people — and if everything goes as planned, by the end of next year, we will pass the milestone of one thousand employees.

You operate in various markets, including outside Europe. Where is growth the fastest?

Our fastest growing markets today are the United States, Finland, Germany and Sweden. In the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries and Estonia, we are expecting moderate growth with carefully chosen customers. Our Lithuanian and Serbian development centers are also rapidly growing.
