EVAD, formally owned by Ethos Group, will continue to operate under its well-established brand name with CEO, Matt Hill and Sales Director, Richard Osborn continuing to lead the Derby-based team. The company is a nationwide provider of communications solutions to businesses of all shapes and sizes, with specialised expertise in contact centres, PCI-compliant platforms, professional services organisations and healthcare, thanks to its award-winning ‘Think Healthcare’ telecoms technology and world-class service delivery team. The investment from Focus will provide a springboard to accelerate growth.

Rhys Bailey, Sales Director at Focus Group, said: “The acquisition of EVAD is a great achievement for Focus Group and we’re delighted to welcome them on board. There is a brilliant cultural fit between the two companies that will create great collaborations and opportunities for geographical reach across the Midlands. EVAD, as a dynamic and ambitious brand, will bring extensive experience in contact centres, enterprise business solutions and healthcare expertise. Focus Group will provide EVAD with the power to diversify its product portfolio with IT, cyber and connectivity services.”

Richard Osborn, Sales Director at EVAD, continued: “As part of the Ethos Group we have enjoyed a lot of success and grown the business organically to be recognised as a leading communications provider. The last decade has been brilliant and I can’t thank the Ethos Group enough. However, the opportunity to become part of Focus Group was too good to miss and perfectly timed as Ethos looked to actively pursue the growth of its core digital print business. Joining the Focus Group family brings us a wealth of knowledge and provides the ability, and product portfolio, to grow significantly. Most importantly, our intrinsic company values are aligned. With a focus on ensuring our team and customers benefit from any investment, this will enable us to provide the same award-winning services, but turbo-charged!”

Tom Keen, Investment Director, Bowmark Capital added: “This investment is a great opportunity for Focus Group and EVAD, enabling both brands to extend their reach across the UK, broaden their product portfolios and provide an enhanced service to their specialist markets. Congratulations to the team!”
