Read Time: 2 Min

ECI is pleased to announce our investment in MThree Corporate Consulting Limited (“MThree”). The company will continue to be led by founder and CEO, Alex Headley.  

Global technology consultancy MThree works with financial services organisations and tech companies to provide expert technology capability. This is underpinned by its innovative ‘Alumni’ brand, which provides tailored sourcing and development of high-performing STEM graduates for global clients across banking and other business sectors.

Founded in 2010, MThree today employs more than 500 people with offices in six countries and across three continents. The investment from ECI will enable the Company to accelerate its organic growth strategy and international expansion.  

With year-on-year growth and 2017 revenues up 31% to £32 million, MThree has experienced sustained demand from global investment and retail banking clients since inception. Earlier this year, MThree was named a talent partner for a Tier 1 US investment bank, further boosting its international business.  

Demand for MThree’s services has been driven by a number of factors, including MThree’s client-first business model, which provides a blueprint for global talent development alongside expert technology and business consultancy. Increasing demand for tech talent, a competitive graduate marketplace, greater investment in technology budgets and a broad scope of regulatory and compliance obligations in financial services are additional, key factors driving growth.  

Alex Headley, founder and CEO of MThree, said: 

At MThree we are focused on helping our clients meet their goals by providing great people. We turn degrees into fulfilling careers, giving graduates the skills required to bridge the gap between academia and the professional world. This, in turn, provides our clients with an influx of highly capable, highly motivated graduate tech talent who are already achieving unbelievable results. All of this is underpinned by expertise in our successful consulting practice, which gives us a deep understanding of the challenges our clients face.

We’re immensely proud of our track record in helping promising students begin their careers with some of the world’s most exciting companies. We also see growing demand for our services as the global war for tech talent heats up. ECI has a strong track record in helping growth companies to realise their full potential, and today’s investment will help us to meet this growing demand.”

Alex Headley

Found and CEO of Mthree

MThree operates in a very promising market and the Company has an excellent reputation with a stellar list of quality clients. We’re delighted to be partnering with Alex and his team as they execute their ambitious strategy for MThree and embark on their next stage of growth.
