LeicestershireLive’s Top 200 Companies List 2022: Part Three of Four – Issues 50-21

0

Here we reveal the third part of our countdown to the LeicestershireLive 2022 Top 200 Companies list – taking companies from positions 50 to 21.

The Top 20 will be unveiled later this morning (February 22) during a breakfast presentation at the Winstanley House hotel in Leicester, and will be published on BusinessLive shortly thereafter.

The list, based on annual turnover, was compiled by De Montfort University using publicly available information from Companies House for the 2019/20 financial year. It was sponsored by Leicestershire-based Patterson Commercial Law.

The companies included are national and international players, supporting tens of thousands of jobs and injecting billions into the economy.

As well as celebrating the list and the people involved in its creation, the breakfast event will also recognize Leicestershire’s biggest business, highest climber of 2022 and highest new entry.

Richard Edwards, regional events manager for LeicestershireLive and the parent company of BusinessLive Reach Plc in the Midlands and South East regions, said the list reflected the success of large and medium-sized businesses that have made the regional business community this that she is today.

Mr. Edwards said, “Never has it been more important to celebrate the vital role played by our county’s biggest companies.

“We have some exceptional businesses located in our area that are achieving great things – they are living proof of Leicestershire’s economic resilience and strong business vitality.”

Rik Pancholi, Managing Director of Patterson Commercial Law, said: “As a business and commercial law firm, all we do is support small and medium-sized businesses and it’s great to see some of our customers count among the best companies in Leicestershire.

“When the opportunity arose to work with LeicestershireLive to support Leicestershire’s Top 200 in January 2022, we thought there would be no better way to start the year than with such a fantastic celebration. .”

The Leicestershire list complements the East Midlands 500 Best Companies list, also published by BusinessLive. DMU has partnered with the University of Derby and Nottingham Trent University to compile this list.
