This outdoor clothing chain has more than 285 shops across Britain, Europe and North America, and its online business ships to 100 countries. It doubled international sales to £46.4m in 2017, boosted by store openings and strong growth online. The retailer is run by founder Mark Neale, 50, who took back control of the business in 2013 after an £85m buyout from private equity firm LDC. The company plans to open outlets in Holland and the Czech Republic this year and expand its presence in the US.
