Fast Track 100

This utility company promises to beat the standard tariffs offered by the big six energy suppliers, a policy that has helped it triple customer numbers to more than 200,000 over the past few years. Sales, which represent gas and electricity supplied, doubled to £146.5m in 2012 as a result. One of First Utility’s other selling points is its smart meter, which transmits usage data every 30 minutes, then displays it online so consumers can monitor their energy consumption and receive an accurate bill. The Warwickshire business was founded seven years ago by Darren Braham, 47, Marcus Citron, 47, and Mark Daeche, 50.
