This niche recruitment business operates in more than 70 countries, placing candidates who specialise in Microsoft Dynamics, Netsuite and Salesforce. In 2016, chief executive James Lloyd-Townshend, 44, led a buyout backed by private equity firm TPG Growth, which acquired a majority stake in the Newcastle upon Tyne company for an undisclosed sum. The group has opened offices in Philadelphia and Dallas, which helped turnover reach £126.5m last year. It is now targeting the cloud technology sector and in June opened new headquarters in Newcastle as part of its plans to hire 450 new employees by the end of 2018.
