Fast Track 100

Television advertising and title sponsorship of National League football helped this broker generate sales of £75.1m in 2018. It connects vehicle suppliers with customers looking to rent a van via its website, offering free delivery and a range of finance options. Tippers, pick-ups and refrigerated vans are available from the firm, which also provides insurance. Andy Alderson, 50, previously ran a used-car dealership and set up Vanarama in 2007 after spotting a gap in the market for an online leasing platform. Last year, the brand management firm Pentland Group took an 11.5% stake and the company’s new car-leasing site, Motorama, was launched.
