Established in Hull in 1999, Giacom is a specialist cloud services marketplace which provides cloud services to the SME market via the Information Technology Consultants (ITCs) community.
Giacom offers a one-stop platform for all of the cloud software, infrastructure and IT support services that an ITC might require to transition an SME client into a public or private cloud environment and then manage them on an ongoing basis. Underpinned by a Microsoft 2-Tier Cloud Solution Provider licence, Giacom has rapidly become the vendor of choice for over 4,000 ITCs enabling the business to service a fast-growing addressable market estimated to be worth c£2.2bn.
We invested in 2017, facilitating a management buyout of the business by Giacom Chief Executive Mike Wardell and his team from the founder, Nick Marshall.
Our investment will support Giacom as it builds on the strong momentum it has generated to date by continuing to expand its network with ITCs, cross-selling more products and services across the marketplace and through strategic M&A.
“Livingbridge’s track record of supporting other high growth businesses such as ours, combined with their experience of investing in the tech sector, means they are uniquely positioned to work with us and I am excited about our future partnership with them.”
