Adrian Sunderland and Norman Munro set up this Derby- based internet service provider (ISP) in 1993. It offers dial-up, broadband and web-hosting services to commercial and residential customers and wholesale broadband services to smaller ISPs. Since 2002 Griffin has more than doubled its client base to 40,000, which helped to boost sales 60% a year from £1.2m in 2002 to £3.2m in 2004. Chairman Richard Cunningham, alongside Sunderland, led a management buy-in in April, becoming the majority shareholder.
