We’re delighted to announce our investment in BCN Group, one of the largest and fastest-growing independent Managed Service Providers in the north of England. The investment represents a full realisation for Beech Tree Private Equity which invested in BCN Group in 2018. 

BCN Group is a Microsoft Direct Tier 1 CSP and Gold Partner with bases in Manchester, Leeds, Runcorn and Bradford. It supports over 1,000 clients to deliver and manage business-critical technology solutions to over 30,000 users, with a customer retention rate of 98% and an industry-leading client satisfaction score of 89%.

BCN Group has completed five strategic acquisitions since 2018, significantly expanding its capabilities and customer reach, and our investment will provide capital to continue this buy-and-build strategy going forwards.  

In this age of digital transformation, there is a phenomenal growth opportunity for BCN Group to support clients to solve their IT challenges and achieve the best possible results from technology for their business. ECI are an experienced technology investor, so we are obviously delighted to be partnering with them to deliver on our organic growth potential and to continue to deliver on our M&A strategy. I’d also like to thank Beech Tree for their investment and support over the last four years.”
