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.
Inflexion were a tremendous partner, with their experience in international growth organically and acquisitively a real boost to our development. Their unwavering support as business stalled in 2020 was crucial; they helped us manage the business in very difficult circumstances and kept us looking ahead so that we are well placed for the return of travel. We look forward to our next phase of growth with TripActions.
