Revenue: £972.4m (+10%)

Net profit: 4.8%  Staff: 1,346

The UK arm of the world's largest reseller edged closer to the £1bn-revenue mark in calendar 2019 as client device refreshes and referrals from US-based customers helped fuel a 10 per cent top-line uplift. Net profits were roughly flat at £46.9m.

The pandemic has inevitably taken a toll on CDW's 2020 performance, with chief executive Christine Leahy revealing last month that UK sales declined "high single digits" in Q3 as government support programmes started to wind down. Global revenues also dipped 3.1 per cent to $4.8bn.

UK managing director Dan Laws last month announced his exit from the firm after 21 years.

Globally, Fortune 500 giant CDW turns over $18bn, boasting 10,000 staff and 250,000 customers.
