The substantial additional capital investment comes six months after funds managed by Charlesbank Capital Partners acquired 6DG with the goal of building the UK’s largest mid-market managed services provider. With a commitment to recruit 50 people 6DG will be building and developing its sales, marketing and customer service teams, amongst others, to service its growing customer and partner base. The £12m investment for growth is a purely organic play, designed to complement 6DG’s ongoing ambitious acquisition agenda.
Alastair Mills, CEO of 6DG, commented, ‘We want to own the mid-market. We now employ 400 people, have over 2,000 customers and own the most comprehensive technology infrastructure of any UK managed service provider. Now we are making a recruitment investment that is unprecedented in our sector as we look to bring the best talent in our industry to Six Degrees to fuel our future growth.’
