ECI Partners Acquisition of Stake in Tusker from Smedvig

Tusker, the UK’s market leading employee benefits car provider, today announced a new major shareholder, private equity group ECI Partners, to support their continued rapid growth.  

ECI Partners has invested in the business, with the previous investors, Smedvig Capital, exiting after a highly successful relationship with the company.

ECI is one of the UK’s most successful private equity groups and specialises in investing in mid-market, high-growth companies.  Commenting on the new financial structure, Tusker’s CEO, David Hosking said:  “This is a very exciting time for us.  Tusker is now a substantial business generating revenues in excess of £100m and we are excited to have ECI as our new partner.  Their depth of experience and extensive level of engagement with our team will provide a great platform from which we can continue our exceptional growth.”

The existing management team of David Hosking (Chief Executive Officer), David Brockwell (Chief Financial Officer), Mark Sinclair (Chief Operations Officer) and Iain Carmichael (Chief Commercial Officer) will remain in place to continue to execute the highly successful strategic plan.  They will be joined by the newly appointed Chairman Richard Prosser, who replaces Sir Trevor Chinn who is stepping down.

“We are very excited to welcome Richard to the team.  He joins Tusker with a wealth of business to business experience gained in the travel industry (most recently as Non-executive Chairman of former ECI investment, CarTrawler).  We would also like to extend our sincere thanks to Sir Trevor Chinn who has supported the company through its recent growth and has been instrumental in getting Tusker to this point” comments David Hosking.

The senior management team is supported by a growing employee base that is structured to put the customer first, and the focus on exceptional customer service will remain a core value of the business.  Since launching its market leading salary sacrifice for cars product in 2008, Tusker now manages in excess of 13,000 vehicles and this figure is expected to increase by 30% over the next twelve months.

Paul McCreadie, a partner at ECI, concludes: “The team at Tusker provides an excellent fit with ECI and we were particularly attracted by the company’s innovative and market leading culture.  Tusker has an exceptional management team and we are looking forward to working together to continue to grow and develop the business.”
