Profit Track 100

Seamus McDermott, the son of an Irish building family, moved to Britain in 1992 and started his business from a spare bedroom. Thirteen years later, his company is developing eight housing schemes in the Liverpool and Manchester areas and builds more than 180 homes a year. The buoyant property market and the company’s ability to identify and exploit good sites have helped profits to rise 54% a year from £1.4m in 2000 to £5.3m in 2003.
