Our story

Since 1994 we’ve grown from a tiny team in a small London office, to more than 6,000 people in over 40 territories. Our long-term vision has always been to create an empowered, talent-driven company – something we’re committed to doing while retaining our spirit and independence.

As we look to the future, we have decided to change our name to bring simplicity to our Group. As of October 2020, Hyperion Group will be called Howden Group Holdings – a name that stays true to our roots, while looking forward to the future our companies are building together.

How we did it

Featured awards

We are proud of the work we do. Our focus is on delivering for our clients and supporting our people, but it’s rewarding when the work we enjoy receives official recognition. Here are a few examples:
