Profit Track 100

Nigel Meek, 53, Malcolm Mintram, 61, and Nigel Shannon, 53, set up this Hampshire firm in 2003, initially developing affordable housing projects with registered providers. In 2008, when the financial crisis hit, Highwood expanded into strategic land acquisition and care homes. Managing director Guy Hayward, 61, was appointed in 2017. Profits increased to £5.8m in 2018, partly thanks to its North Stoneham Park development, which started selling properties last year.
