CTI Group (CTI) is an award-winning digital transformation business, providing a range of services spanning digital marketing, web and app development and digital strategy.

Founded almost 20 years ago by CEO Nick Rhind, CTI has grown into an industry leader through its commitment to people, its clients, and its use of innovative and cutting-edge technologies.

Over the last three years, it has completed five acquisitions, with revenues growing to £18m in the last 12 months. Today, the Manchester-headquartered business employs 175 people across its offices in Manchester and Lancaster.

Building on momentum

LDC first backed the CTI team in February 2022, making a £25m minority investment to support the business to boost its presence in the UK and overseas. It will now roll out its strategy of enhancing its suite of digital services and expanding through acquisition.

This includes plans to expand into new international territories, and opening new offices to support its growing customer base in the USA, Europe and Asia.
