MDS

Starting life as Martin Dawes Telecommunications, this Warrington company became MDS in 1999 when it sold all its divisions, except IT, to BT. The firm carried on as a software developer and today, still chaired by Dawes, it creates platforms for telecoms clients to monitor operational processes and manage billing data. Clients include O2, BT and Vodafone in Europe, and AT&T and Telus in North America. Investing 17% of its revenue each year in product development, profits grew 72% a year, from £810,000 in 2007 to £4.1m in 2010.
