Xperience Group, a digital solutions specialist, has acquired GCC Group Limited (“GCC”). GCC is a leading Business Applications Solutions (ERP and CRM) and Managed IT Services provider, supporting over 500 clients in complimentary sectors to Xperience including Not-for-Profit, Construction and Manufacturing.


The acquisition of GCC is the third in 24 months for Xperience, and its first since Bowmark Capital, a leading private equity investment firm specialising in technology, data and services companies’ investment in Xperience. Over this time its headcount has more than doubled to over 230 employees, client numbers have increased to 1,200 and turnover is now in excess of £30 million.


The GCC acquisition also strengthens Xperience’s growing network of offices across the UK including Peterborough, Bury St Edmunds, Glasgow, Lisburn, London and Gloucester. Following the acquisition, GCC will trade under the Xperience brand.


Iain O’Kane, CEO, Xperience says; “Xperience is a rapidly growing business with a strong management team, financial track record and a successful history of acquiring high performing businesses. The acquisition of GCC is strategically important as it continues to build out our Business Application capabilities, enhancing our client proposition and broadening our footprint in the UK.”


Chris Hartham, CEO at GCC, comments; “Over the last thirty years we have built a leading IT Solutions provider. Our ambition has always been to join forces with a company that shared our values and could continue to support our business strategy. As the relationship with Iain and his wider team has developed, it has been clear to me that Xperience represents a great home for GCC, and I am excited about what this transaction will provide to both our valued customers and quality team.”
