Read Time: 1 Min

We’re delighted to announce that we have expanded the capabilities of our Commercial Team with the appointment of Badr Khan, a new independent Growth Specialist, focusing on Technology. The appointment will further support ECI’s portfolio to deliver exceptional organic growth.

Badr is a highly experienced board level technology advisor, with previous roles at Marks & Spencer, Matches Fashion, and Auction Technology Group. He was part of the leadership team at Auction Technology Group while ECI was invested, with the business conducting large scale M&A and listing on LSE. Badr has been helping ECI assess potential investment opportunities, as well as working on projects across ECI and its portfolio, and is a non-executive director at Ciphr.

ECI’s Growth Specialists are a panel of independent experts, available as needed to support portfolio management teams on projects that drive value within key focus areas. This new hire follows the appointment of Lesley Davies and Chris Ginnelly as Growth Specialists focussed on People & Culture and Sales & Marketing respectively.

The value that can be created by smart use of technology, linked to commercial business drivers, is a pervasive theme across our investments. Badr’s ability to make these links to help us drive better investment and portfolio growth decisions has been highly valuable in the work we have done together, and we look forward to continue working with him as part of the Growth Specialist Panel.”
