Midland-based even management and booking agency Ellis Salsby Ltd has acquired Maverick Solutions UK Ltd. MD Ellis Salsby (pictured) tells CN the move as part of the strategic plan to grow the company and offer a greater range of services to its clients.
“We are looking forward to integrating the two companies and building on the great service Maverick have delivered over the years and maybe adding a few extra elements along the way; there is great synergy between us. Additionally, as the employees will transfer to ESL, this will ensure continuity of service,” he adds.
The acquisition sees two well established Midlands conference and event management firms joining forces. Ellis Salsby was founded by Angela and Ellis Salsby in 1989. The acquisition will add an extensive client portfolio, varying from large blue chip organisations to associations, charities and small-to-medium size businesses.
Lesley Lucas set up Maverick in 2001 from her base in Tamworth, building up a loyal client base. She comments: “My personal circumstances have taken me in a new direction and, having known Ellis for many years, I know that our clients will continue to be well looked after. ESL offer a great service with a similar ethos.”
