Priory Group

Priory Group’s clinics are famous for helping celebrities tackle drug and alcohol addiction, but it is also one of Britain’s largest independent providers of mental health services, specialist care and education. Advent International paid £925m for the company in 2011, and then oversaw its acquisition of Craegmoor Group. Tom Riall, 53, took over as chief executive in April.
