Fast Track 100

Holidaymakers can pick from a variety of accommodation and activities at Away Resorts’ three parks on the Isle of Wight, Hayling Island and in Lincolnshire. Founded by three former managers of another holiday park company, Neill Ryder, 36, Carl Castledine, 43, and Greg Lashley, 48, Away Resorts received initial backing from the private equity firm CBPE Capital in 2008. Since then, it has seen significant growth due in part to investment in its properties and cost savings from having acquired two of its sites out of administration. The company plans to add a few more parks in the coming years.
