Radius Payment Solutions

The company

Radius Payments Solutions is a leading fleet payments and telematics provider to small and medium sized fleets across Europe, North America and Asia. Founded in 1990 by CEO Bill Holmes, who still leads the business and remains the largest shareholder, Radius has grown rapidly since its inception, through a combination of organic and acquisitive growth. Radius has over 1,000 employees with operations that span 14 countries across Europe, North America and Asia.

Radius acts as the key intermediary and service provider between major energy companies, energy retail networks and over 200,000 SME customers. Capitalising on its scale, integrated technology and telematics service platforms, Radius provides SMEs with significant purchasing power and customer service excellence. Radius has expanded beyond its core fleet card products to become a major provider of MasterCard payment solutions. It has successfully entered the fast growth telematics market and now offers insurance products to its growing customer base. At the forefront of its industry’s digital innovation, Radius operates a proprietary customer-focused portal and reporting platform known as “Velocity”.

Growth strategy

The business has successfully incentivised performance through its employee ownership model. Bill Holmes sought to retain this and his leadership of the strong business built over 30 years. Inflexion’s unique Partnership Capital model presented him with the right investment solution.

The Inflexion difference

We will support Radius’s continued organic growth whilst helping to accelerate sales across the globe. Capitalising on our in-country experts in Asia and the South America, we will support further international penetration and expansion.
