Smyle

The Ryder Cup opening and closing ceremonies and Rolls-Royce’s centenary year party are among the events organised by this agency. Chief executive Rick Stainton, 45, and innovation director Matt Margetson, 44, founded the Hertford business in 2003, steering turnover to £27m in the year to March 2018 thanks to work on live events and digital experiences for clients such as Samsung, Salesforce, EY and Red Bull. In April Smyle sold a majority stake to the London private equity firm Rockpool for an undisclosed sum. As part of the deal, Chad Lion-Cachet, 49, was appointed chairman.
