International Track 200

Chairman Matthew Freud, 50, sold a majority stake in his public relations firm to The Publicis Group in 2005, valuing it at €70m (£56m), but bought it back in 2011 for an undisclosed sum. Freuds’ main business is consumer and corporate public relations, which it provides to customers that include Asda, Sky, Mars and Pepsi. The group more than doubled its American revenues to £6.6m in 2012, and total international sales rose to £14.8m.
