Its strategic travel management services focus on law firms, insurance companies, finance houses and the energy sector. Reed & Mackay also provides an industry-leading event management service. 

The Inflexion investment

Inflexion supported Reed & Mackay's UK and international growth both organically and through six acquisitions in the UK, Germany, France, Australia and the US. The firm also opened six new international offices in New York, California, Toronto, Singapore, Amsterdam and India.   

The Inflexion difference

Inflexion is very experienced in supporting the expansion of both corporate and consumer travel companies. Current and previous investments in consumer travel brands include On the Beach and luxury operator Scott Dunn as well as corporate travel specialist Griffin Global Group. All are highly successful, multinational operators. Reed & Mackay’s India office was supported by Inflexion’s country expert in Bangalore, while our digital team supported the development of Reed & Mackay’s digital customer-facing offering, which provided an enhanced user experience and drove online sales and higher margins. Six acquisitions were supported by Inflexion, including Hillgate Travel and the Business Travel Direct division of Ickenham Travel Group.
