Top Track 250

Chairman Julian Richer, 54, opened his first shop at London Bridge when he was just 19. The company has since expanded to 53 stores and says it is the biggest hi-fi retailer in Britain. Usually based on the periphery of main shopping areas to benefit from lower rents, it also sells and installs home cinema and TV equipment.
