Top Track 250

Comprising property, construction and hotel companies, this business was founded in 1999 by chairman Surinder Arora, 61, who had been running bed and breakfast services for Heathrow’s airline staff. Revenue in 2018 grew 24% to £293.7m, helped by its expanding portfolio of 13 hotels, many of which are operated under franchises with InterContinental, Accor and Marriott. It acquired a luxury golf club in Buckinghamshire in November last year and has opened three more hotels in the past 12 months, with another scheduled to be completed in 2020.
