Recognising that a cash-rich but time-poor demographic exists, founders Alex Cheatle and Andrew Long started this firm in 1998 to provide a bespoke concierge service. Ten Lifestyle Management says its 311 staff are experts in fields such as golf or the theatre, and have helped meet all manner of requests, from finding a decent plumber to rescuing clients stranded in the desert. It now provides a 24/7 service in eight languages. With a recently opened office in New York, sales, including subscriptions and cost of goods, grew 45% a year, from £3.7m in 2006 to £11.3m in 2009.
