Top Track 250

Founded by three brothers selling silverware from a suitcase on the streets of Belfast, this year the jewellers celebrated its centenary. Now based in Lancashire, the firm’s investment in refurbishing its 71 stores and a greater focus on luxury watch brands have led to profits increasing by 9% to reach £13.4m. Mark Adlestone, 60, is chairman of the third-generation family-owned business and Anna Blackburn, 44, is managing director.
