Top Track 250

Warwick-based Telent provides network and communications services across a range of industries including transport, public safety and defence. Its 38% jump in sales was partly due to the first year of the National Roads Telecommunications Service contract, worth £500m and lasting seven years. In March, Highways England renewed all three of its regional technology maintenance contracts. Chief executive Mark Plato died last month in a motorbike accident. He had led the company since its formation in 2006. Director Heather Green, 48, has been appointed interim chief executive.
