Fast Track 100

A favourite of Daniel Craig’s James Bond in Skyfall, this upmarket swimwear brand is worn on yachts in St. Tropez and beachside clubs in Ibiza. The London company was founded in 2007 by former photographer Adam Brown, 49, who spotted a gap in the market for fashionable men’s swimwear. It has since launched women’s and children’s wear ranges and last year it raised £8m from Piper Private Equity, which will fund international growth into the US and Far East.
