Top Track 100

This holiday operator began 50 years ago with one small caravan park in Kent. It now owns the Haven Holidays, Warner Leisure Hotels and Butlins brands, occupying 51 sites across the UK. Bourne offers both family-friendly and adults-only breaks, and typically invests £90m a year to stay ahead of its rivals. Sales reached £839m in 2012, helped by a boom in Britons choosing to holiday at home. The company is chaired by co-founder Peter Harris, 79.
