Three event agencies feature in Sunday Times Fast Track 100

This year's list includes a record number of businesses with female founders and chief executives.

Sleek Events, Total Management Group and Identity all ranked in this year’s Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100.

The list ranks Britain’s top 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales over the last three years.

Boutique event agency, Sleek Events, was the highest-placed events business in the list, coming in at number 19. Total Management Group hit 83rd place and Identity ranked at 90th. 

Since Jennifer Davidson started Sleek Events in 2015, using her spare bedroom as an office, the company has expanded and services corporate clients and luxury private parties.

"This recognition is down to the fantastic team we have at Sleek Events," said Davidson. "Their dedication to creating unforgettable experiences for our clients is second to none. I’m exceedingly proud of everyone and very thankful to our clients, suppliers and trusted freelancers who have supported us over the last few years."

In this year’s Fast Track 100 league table, there are 28 female founders, co-founders or chief executives running 26 businesses, a record high. 

Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Group, which has supported Fast Track over its 23 years, said, "While these are uncertain times, there is one thing I am certain of: entrepreneurs are the ones driving innovation, chasing improvements and challenging the norm.

"There are so many inspiring examples of this on the Fast Track 100 league table and it’s heartening to see the power of entrepreneurship to create jobs and positive change across Britain."

The top spot on this year’s league table went to Chilly’s Bottles, set up by two former colleagues-turned business-partners, James Butterfield and Tim Bouscarle. The company creates steel bottles which keep liquids hot or cold.
