An investment in growth

In 2019 we made a significant investment in Texthelp to support its management team, led by CEO Mark McCusker, CTO Martin McKay and CFO Seamus Scullion.

Following the secondary buyout, the team plan to accelerate the business’ growth plans and further develop its software proposition.

This partnership gives us the added resources and expertise to bring our services to more organisations across the globe. LDC has a longstanding reputation of supporting technology firms and we look forward to working alongside their team during the next phase of our journey.”
