Top Track 250

This Newcastle-based recruitment group has 15 offices across Europe, America, Asia and Australia. The group’s rapid growth overseas followed its buyout by TPG Growth in 2016 — the private equity firm acquired a majority stake in a deal reportedly valuing the company at just under £200m. Sales rose 26% to £227.9m in 2018, under chief executive James Lloyd-Townshend, 46.
