The table places Apollo above a number of household names that include Manchester United, Arsenal, Pret-a-Manger and Travelodge.
The only property-related company to feature within the top 100, Apollo had previously ranked 81 in the league table proving quite how fast the company has grown over the past year. The leap up the operating profit-based table reflects Apollo’s recent acquisitions – M&E and responsive maintenance businesses – combined with expansion into new regions, including Wales, the Midlands and the North.
Apollo’s CEO, Dave Sheridan collected the certificate with Apollo’s Group Commercial Director, Paul Johnson, at an event run by the Sunday Times earlier this week.
Dave commented: “This achievement represents months of hard work from everyone at Apollo as we’ve driven forward our strategy to become a fully integrated nationwide property services provider. With a national presence solidified, and new build and maintenance operations recently established, our focus as a group board is now turning to the next new business opportunities. This includes growing our eco retrofitting offering to help our clients meet the Government’s carbon emission targets. It is this forward-thinking approach that will enable us to continue maintaining the growth and long-term profitability of the company.”
