Top Track 100

Construction, housing and property group Willmott Dixon had sales of £1bn in 2012, down slightly on the previous year. Based in Hertfordshire but operating nationally, the company has grown in the housing, regeneration and energy sectors to counter the drop in public sector contracts caused by the spending cuts. The business is led by group chief executive Rick Willmott, 50, the fifth generation of the family to run the 161-year-old business.
