Park Resorts runs 49 holiday parks at seaside and rural locations from Scotland to the Isle of Wight. Visitors can rent a caravan, stay in self-catering lodges or camp. The business also sells holiday homes. Electra Partners took a 54% stake from GI Partners in 2013 following a £350m refinancing deal, resulting in a four-year, £60m investment to upgrade facilities. The Hemel Hempstead firm is run by chief executive David Boden, 58. Last month, the group announced plans to merge with rival caravan parks operator Parkdean in a deal worth a reported £1bn, including debt.
