Fast Track 100

Nigel Meek, 54, Malcolm Mintram, 62, and Nigel Shannon, 54, lead this Hampshire firm, which they set up in 2003, initially developing affordable housing with registered providers. Forced to diversify when the 2008 financial crisis hit, Highwood expanded into strategic land acquisition and care homes. Success in these areas and the potential for growth led the three founders to bring in Guy Hayward, 62, as managing director in 2015. Under his leadership, sales reached £66.7m in the year to February, helped by the release of the first tranche of 750 homes the company is constructing at its North Stoneham Park development in Hampshire.
