Fast Track 100

From its headquarters in West Sussex, this firm sells long-haul holiday packages direct to customers, with Caribbean beach holidays making up half of its total sales. Managing director Mike Collins, 43, started the company in 2005 with a business partner who has since been bought out. Tropical Sky creates tailor-made holiday packages in partnership with hotels and airlines, such as British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. Word-of-mouth referrals have helped to boost business. Sales figures represent the value of travel booking sales, and the company’s profit margins were thin.
