QX specialises in business & digital transformation, BPM and consulting services within the accounting, recruitment, real estate, manufacturing, public sector, higher education, healthcare, consumer packaged goods, retail, and utilities and energy sectors. Based on its unique capabilities and specialized approach, the company saw revenue grow by approximately 30% over the past twelve months, and is rapidly emerging as a global leader in the space.

QX spent over a year considering the attributes of a potential investment partner and met a number of potential investment firms as part of the process. Ultimately, the QX leadership team hand-picked Long Ridge because of their experience in the tech-enabled services industry and excellent track-record partnering with fast-growing, high potential businesses like QX.

“The Long Ridge team brings a wealth of senior experience in the BPM and consulting sectors. I am so proud of everything that has been achieved at QX so far, and I couldn’t have asked for a more impressive and experienced investment partner to support the next stage of the QX growth story,” said Chris Robinson, Founder of QX Global Group.

The partnership brings together one of the fastest-growing global BPM specialists with a recognised US-based growth equity firm with a stellar history of helping build some of the world’s leading companies in the technology and tech-enabled services sectors.

Angad Singh, Partner and Jim Brown, Founder and Managing Partner, Long Ridge jointly said, “We are very excited to welcome QX to the Long Ridge portfolio and have very high hopes of a truly rewarding growth partnership with Pom and his team over the coming year.”

Whilst the majority of the QX Board and management team will remain in their roles and reinvest in the company, the following key changes will come about as a result of the deal:

Following the investment, Founder and Executive Chairman Chris Robinson will step down from the QX Board after leading the business for the last 20 years.

Abid Neemuchwala will join the company as Chairman. Abid is a recognized leader in the BPM industry, and will work closely with the QX team as the company executes on its growth strategy.  He is an advisor on Long Ridge’s Executive Council and previously held the role of CEO at Wipro.

Pom Chakravarti will assume the role of Group CEO. Pom has been with QX for nearly 20 years and has extensive experience as a leader across all the business’s main divisions, and previously served as the company’s Chief Strategy Officer.
