LDC shares our enthusiasm and vision and we now have the additional capital and expertise needed to fire up our growth plans in Wales and beyond.”Sean Taylor, Co-Founder
LDC backed Zip World’s ambitious management team, led by Co-founder Sean Taylor, Managing Director David Stacey and Chairman Giles Thorley. Thorley brought 25 years’ experience as an investor and strategic adviser to the leisure sector to the management team.
The management team kick-started its growth strategy immediately following LDC’s investment and in February 2019 it announced it was recruiting 100 additional staff and submitted plans for an adventure park in a former coal mine in the South Wales Valleys. This would be the first site for the business outside of North Wales.
