This niche IT recruitment group operates in more than 70 countries, fielding candidates who specialise in Microsoft Dynamics, Netsuite and Salesforce. In April 2016, chief executive James Lloyd-Townshend, 44, led a buyout backed by private-equity firm TPG, which acquired a majority stake in the Newcastle-based company for an undisclosed sum. Growth in the US and expansion into new technology sectors helped sales grow 33% in 2016.
