Pulsant

Reading-based Pulsant provides managed IT services, including cloud computing and hosting, to 3,000 businesses from its 10 data centres in the UK. Pulsant was formed in 2010 when private equity firm Bridgepoint bought Lumison, a former Tech Track 100 company, and later merged it with three more firms that it acquired — Blue Square Data, DediPower and Scolocate. Chief executive Mark Howling, 53, oversaw sales of £43.7m in 2013 before a consortium of investors, led by New York based Oak Hill Capital Partners, acquired the company in June for an undisclosed sum.
