Sports Shoes, £80m

League One foot­ball club Southend United won pro­mo­tion via the play-offs in May. This will have pleased Dutch en­trepreneur and long-time Shrimpers’ di­rec­tor Frank Van Wezel. He set up Southend-based sports shoe group Hi-Tec in 1974. The com­pany made £1.7m profit on £76m sales in 2013-14. It should eas­ily be worth its £71.5m net as­sets. In all the Dutch­man should be worth £80m.
