Moore Barlow acts on MBO of the Serocor Group

Moore Barlow has advised the management team in their successful management buyout of the Serocor Group, the leading £100m+ turnover recruitment group headquartered in Portsmouth, Hampshire. The deal was supported by specialist asset based lender Breal-Zeta CF.

Serocor is an award winning and well established recruitment group attracting, engaging and nurturing STEM talent in partnership with its clients, many of which are blue-chip names. The deal enables the new management team to take control of the group and set a fresh strategic direction for the business.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the new management team to embark on an exciting new business journey and a first class performance from the team at Moore Barlow, who supported us every step of the way. This was a complicated and demanding project and they really went the extra mile to get the deal over the line.

Dave Wilson, COO, Serocor Group

We are absolutely delighted for Dave, Leon, Shaun and the rest of the Serocor team – they have been a pleasure to work with and we are looking forward to seeing them steer the Serocor ship through the next exciting phase in its history.
