Global exposure from its construction of the beach volleyball arena for the 2012 Olympics helped propel Arena’s international sales to £47.8m in 2015. In the past year the firm provided facilities, including seating, structures and furniture, for high-profile events such as the Rio Olympics and US Open Golf Championship. Chief executive Greg Lawless, 57, bought a Hong Kong marquee company last August in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
