Key points

Revenue: £568m (+5%)

Net profit: 3.2%  Staff: 2,282

This technical services juggernaut grew revenue by five per cent - and maintained profit levels - in a fiscal year to 31 March 2020 that was shaped by the sudden passing of its CEO Mark Plato last September.

Despite operating partially outside our market, Telent's Network Services arm is a Cisco, Juniper and HPE Aruba partner that provides networking, storage, hosting systems and devices to large enterprises and government clients. In September 2019, it bagged a five-year contract to design and transform the IT and comms infrastructure of the University of Exeter.

Plato, whom Telent described as an "inspirational leader, friend and mentor", had led the firm since 2005.
