Six Degrees to invest £12m in organic growth this year


Fifty staff to be recruited this year as part of plans to become the UK’s largest mid-market managed services provider

Six Degrees Group (6DG) is launching a £12 million organic growth investment programme to support its goal of being the biggest mid-market managed services provider in the UK.

The investment is being provided by Charlesbank Capital Partners, which acquired the unified communications provider in June from private equity group Penta Capital for an undisclosed fee.

It will see 6DG add to its current 400 headcount with the recruitment of 50 staff across its sales, marketing and customer service teams to further cater for its growing customer base, which currently stands at over 2,000.

The company said the investment in growth is a purely organic play, designed to complement its ongoing acquisition agenda.

6DG CEO Alastair Mills (pictured) said: “We want to own the mid-market. We now employ 400 people, have over 2,000 customers and own the most comprehensive technology infrastructure of any UK managed service provider.

“Now we are making a recruitment investment that is unprecedented in our sector as we look to bring the best talent in our industry to Six Degrees to fuel our future growth.”
