Multi-million pound minority investment to support organic growth.

Supporting organic growth

In December 2020, FSP secured a multi-million-pound minority investment to support the company’s bold organic growth strategy, enabling it to expand its client base and suite of digital and software services, as well as providing an opportunity to explore complementary acquisitions. LDC’s Value Creation Partners will work closely with the existing management team to support strategy development.

LDC is backing FSP’s ambitious management team, led by Simon Grosse (Chief Executive Officer), Simon Walker (Chief Customer Officer), and Tim Ebenezer (Chief Digital Officer). Sharon Baylay joins as a Non-Executive Director bringing extensive executive experience and a network encompassing brands including Microsoft and the BBC.
