Profit Track 100
The Sunday Times Profit Track 100 is a list published by British newspaper The Sunday Times each year ranking Britain's fastest growing private companies by their average profit growth over the previous three years.
The league table began in 2000 and is operated by Fast Track, a research and events company.
Given the 3 year growth criteria, it is very rare for companies to rank highly across consecutive years. Partnership Assurance and The Hut Group notably achieved the feat of coming top 2 years in a row.
