The UK’s top 100 entrepreneurs

16 September 2021

Bill Holmes, founder and CEO of Radius Limited, was named in the Financial Times' “Who is building big businesses in Britain?”

The FT recently reported on those entrepreneurs who have built large UK-based businesses. Their rule of thumb was revenues or a valuation of at least £500m. Entrepreneurs needed to be closely tied to the UK, remain involved with the company and be responsible for most of the growth.

Radius Limited founder and CEO Bill Holmes was featured at 21 in the top 100. We are proud to feature so prominently in the list in recognition of the significant effort by Bill and the entire Radius team over the past 32 years and our ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of our many thousands of customers around the world.
