Fast Track 100

Demand for staff that can help companies implement their digital transformation strategies has driven growth at this specialist recruiter. William Jacques, 44, started Xcede in 2003, originally operating out of his apartment. It now works with the likes of Facebook, Deliveroo and British Gas, helping them fill roles in their data, digital and analytics teams. Turnover — which represents contractor gross salaries and permanent placement fees — hit £18.6m last year, when Jacques also led a management buyout. Xcede anticipates that demand for data professionals in Europe will fuel future growth; it is set to open a Berlin office early next year.
