Fast Track 100

This firm provides manned security services for 30 blue-chip and financial-services companies in the City of London, all within 15 minutes’ walk of its Throgmorton Street office. Founded by chairman Stephen Delia and run by chief executive Mark Szczesnowicz, Knightsbridge Guarding was initially involved in overseas security work but switched its focus to Britain in 2000. The fear of terrorism has led to an upsurge in demand, and sales grew 62% a year from £5.8m in 2003 to £24.6m in 2006.
