Managing director Chris Woodbridge-Cox said he was delighted to be taking a stake in such a well respected and successful company. "We will continue to offer our clients the personalised service they have come to expect from us, while expanding into new areas as we develop the business to meet the needs of the changing travel and communications landscape," he added.

"It’s business as usual and we are all very excited about the future".
