International Track 200

This international insurance broker and underwriting group was formed in 1994 when chief executive David Howden, 51, led a buyout from Lloyd’s broker SBJ. Following its merger with insurance broker RKH this year, it has become the world’s largest employee-owned insurance group, operating from 121 offices in 37 countries. It has expanded organically and through multiple acquisitions, including eight since General Atlantic took a minority stake in 2013. Overseas sales hit £149m in 2014.
