Brightwave has announced today it has been acquired by Capita, the UK provider of technology-enabled customer and business process services and integrated professional support services.
The Brightwave Group brand will be maintained and Capita's Digital Learning business will be merged with Brightwave to augment existing capability and offer further market reach and potential than either business has previously experienced.
The acquisition will boost Capita's digital learning capability, allowing it to better meet the needs of customers who require a learning provider to increase their performance. Brightwave's reputation for quality, innovation, creativity and ongoing collaboration with its clients will continue to be championed by all in the business and central to the business will be the value that is placed on learning expertise and how this can be applied optimally in order to boost the performance of teams and organizations.
Caroline Walmsley, Managing Director of Brightwave, said: "We are delighted to be joining the Capita family. Doing so offers a significant leap forward, in both capability and reach. Over the past 15 years Brightwave has established a brand and an offering that is second to none and to be able to retain this and augment further under Capita's ownership offers fantastic potential both for Brightwave and for our clients."
Brightwave's senior management team will remain with the business. Caroline Walmsley will remain as Managing Director of Brightwave and Charles Gould, founder of the Brightwave Group, will join the management team as Executive Director.
