A Kent firm which counts TV star Khloe Kardashian among its fans, is vying for top spot in a national list compiled of private firms with the fastest-growing sales.
Published this weekend, the 22nd annual Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 includes a firm in the top three from Sheppey.
There are 20 firms in the list who are based in the south east.
The region’s top-ranked company is beauty products retailer Revolution Beauty, which makes its debut in the top three nationally.
Based in Queenborough, its celebrity fans include US TV star Khloe Kardashian - who praised one of its £3 highlighters.
Launched in 2014, its sales over the past three years have grown by an average of 153% a year, reaching £71.8m last year.
It is the only Kent firm to figure in the list.
The release of the top 100 comes just weeks after the MegaGrowth 50 list was released - highlighting the fastest growing private companies in the county.
The Fast Track 100 is sponsored by Virgin Atlantic, Barclays, BDO, BGF and N+1 Singer, and is compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.
Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Group, which has supported Fast Track 100 for all 22 years, said: "Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of UK business and have always been the beating heart of positive change. In a climate of uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to recognise those entrepreneurs, like those of this year’s Fast Track 100, who are making the world a better place for everybody.”
