It made a number of executive hires last year.

Robin Skidmore, global CEO at Journey Further, said:“We have far exceeded the targets I set for Journey Further when we launched five years ago.

“Most importantly we’ve managed to achieve rapid growth while creating one of the best businesses to work for in the UK.

“The focus last year was on building the senior leadership team we required to scale without compromising our reputation or quality of work.

“With that team now in place, I can focus on launching our Clarity at Speed proposition stateside, where I’ll be relocating to in the spring.”
