Things have been moving quickly at Partners for Change since the management consultancy was 38th in last year’s Fast Track 100 table. Founded by Tim Connolly and Mark Smith in 1994, the company is developing three new arms. It now offers an outsourced project-management service to larger companies. It has developed a recruitment consultancy and has a 50% stake in Eco Partners, a joint venture that offers companies advice on energy consumption. Connolly and Smith, who both left large companies to start the business and financed it with a £20,000 overdraft, have also stepped down from the consultancy team to concentrate on the future. The firm’s sales have increased 102% a year, from £788,000 in 1996 to £6.5m in 1999.
