Leaders has been listed, for the second year running, as one of Britain’s top performing private companies on the Sunday Times Buyout Track 100. Published on 5th  February, The Sunday Times Deloitte Buyout Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s 100 private-equity-backed companies with the fastestgrowing profits (EBITDA) over the last two years.

Leaders was the only letting specialist to have made the list, and one of just two businesses in the estate
agency industry.

The firm, which started as a single office in Brighton in 1983, now has 60 branches from the south coast to East Anglia. It has been run by the founder’s son-in-law, Paul Weller, for the last 16 years and retains a strong family ethos. 

It was listed this year and last year in the Sunday Times Buyout Track 100, making 82nd place this year, with its profits up by 27 per cent a year from £3.4m in 2009 to £5.4m last year.
