The Future Looks Healthy For Evad As The Communications Specialist Joins Forces With Focus Group

Focus Group, award-winning provider of essential business technology, is delighted to announce it has made significant investment in Midlands-based communications specialist Evad, to support its ambitious plans for growth and development into new sectors.

The financial investment in Evad will enable both brands to extend geographical reach across the UK, diversify product portfolios and deliver service expertise to specialist market sectors.

Evad, formally owned by Ethos Group, will continue to operate under its well-established brand name, with Matt Hill (CEO) and Richard Osborn (Sales Director) at the helm, leading the Derby-based team into the future. Evad is a nationwide provider of communications solutions to businesses of all shapes and sizes, with specialised expertise in contact centres, PCI compliant platforms, professional services organisations and healthcare thanks to its award-winning ‘Think Healthcare’ telecoms technology and world-class service delivery team. The investment will provide a springboard for continued success and beyond.

Rhys Bailey, Sales Director at Focus Group said: “The acquisition of Evad is a great achievement for Focus Group and we’re delighted to welcome them on board. There is a brilliant cultural fit between the two companies that will create great collaborations and opportunities for geographical reach across the Midlands. Evad, as a dynamic and ambitious brand, will bring extensive experience in contact centres, enterprise business solutions and healthcare expertise. Focus Group will provide Evad with the power to diversify its product portfolio with IT, cyber and connectivity services.”

Richard Osborn, Sales Director at Evad, continued: “As part of the Ethos Group we have enjoyed a lot of success and grown the business organically to be recognised as a leading communications provider. The last decade has been brilliant and I can’t thank the Ethos group enough. However, the opportunity to become part of Focus Group was too good to miss and perfectly timed as Ethos look to actively pursue the growth of its core digital print business. Joining the Focus Group family brings us a wealth of knowledge and provides the

ability, and product portfolio, to grow significantly. Most importantly, our intrinsic company values are aligned. With a focus on ensuring our team and customers benefit from any investment, this will enable us to provide the same award-winning services, but turbo charged!”

Barry Matthews, CEO at Ethos, continued: “Whilst the decision was a difficult one given that EVAD had been part of the group for over 10 years we were left in no doubt that it was the best decision for Ethos Group Holdings (“Ethos”) and its subsidiaries. It was also the right decision for Matt Hill, Richard Osborn and the EVAD team and means that their efforts will now be part of a group whose focus is telecommunications.

For Ethos it means that we can continue to focus our efforts on the continued expansion of our portfolio of products and services.”
