WestBridge companies recognised in prestigious awards

We are delighted to report that one of our portfolio companies has been recognised in the BVCA Management Team of the Year Awards 2018.  Now in their tenth year, the awards celebrate managerial excellence at private equity and venture capital backed businesses in the UK.

DB Systems, which supplies software, tech and production to live events worldwide, has been named best Growth Management Team of the Year in the south west and will now go forward to the national finals.

James Wakefield, founding partner at WestBridge Capital, said:

“The BVCA awards are hotly contested because they are a genuine endorsement of the quality of a business and its management team.  I am delighted that the hard work put in by David and his team has been recognised in this way. The award follows a really solid year of profitable growth which has been made possible by the entrepreneurial and conscientious approach to business that is evident in everyone at DB Systems.

“This is the fourth consecutive year that a company supported by WestBridge has won so it is also pleasing to know that we remain successful at spotting and backing top quality management teams.”

David Bulley, CEO at DB Systems, said:

“Naturally, it’s extremely gratifying for us to be recognised in this way.  It really has been a stellar year for us and our growth has been helped immensely by the on-going support, guidance and advice provided by WestBridge Capital.”

This success follows our exit from Vista Retail being shortlisted in the 'UK Small Deal of the Year' category by Real Deals last month.
