From its headquarters in Slough, and offices in Toronto and Hong Kong, BCS Global provides cloud-based videoconferencing services to customers in 97 countries. The company was founded in 2001 by MCI WorldCom, now part of Verizon, and listed on Canada’s TSX Venture Exchange in 2003 before being taken private in London two years later. Under chief executive Clive Sawkins, sales have grown as videoconferencing technology has improved and as people embrace services such as Skype and Apple’s FaceTime. Sales grew 138% a year, from £438,000 in 2008 to £5.9m in 2011.
