Profit Track 100

Spotting an opportunity for taxi firms outside London to improve efficiency through technology, Paul Ragan, 51, Nathan Bowles, 42, and the late Joel Hope-Bell set up this business in 2013. It is based in Newport, Wales, and says it serves 25m passengers a year, with more than 3,500 drivers in cities such as Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham and Leeds. Profits reached £4.9m in 2017, when it also bought southwest-based V Cars, its seventh acquisition.
