Revenue (runrate): £50m (+150%)

Net profit: NA     Staff: 400

Although accounts for its year to 31 March show revenues of £17.5m, we have opted to rank this recently formed, LDC-backed buy-and-build by the £50m runrate figure it cited in November 2021, when it acquired SD-WAN specialist Girocom. Forged through the three-way merger of DoubleEdge Professional Services, Foehn and Metaphor IT, Kerv is headed up by serial channel entrepreneur Alastair Mills and counts Microsoft, Genesys, Citrix and VMware among its key vendors. It also acquired Power Platform specialist CloudThing for £29.3m in May.

Covid impact

Kerv claims its product portfolio was "highly appropriate to help customers trade through the Covid lockdown periods", resulting in "excellent progress" for both its contact centre products and IT managed services.
