Top Track 250

Companies such as TalkTalk, Ocado and Whitbread are among the big names to use this Birmingham firm’s services to reduce the cost and complexity of arranging corporate travel. The business was co-founded in 1999 by James McLean, 44, and his late brother Simon. In July last year, chief executive Jill Palmer, 50, supported a multimillion-pound investment round in which growth capital firm BGF acquired a minority stake for an undisclosed sum.
