This outdoor clothing chain has more than 260 stores across the UK, Europe and North America, while its online business ships to 100 countries. It more than doubled international sales to £46.1m in 2017, boosted by new store openings and strong growth online. The company is run by founder Mark Neale, 49, who took back control of the business in 2013 after he led an £85m buyout from private-equity firm LDC.
