MCG Group acquires RP International as cornerstone of technology division

The MCG Group has welcomed RP International (RPI) into the group as the cornerstone acquisition for its technology division.

RPI provides access to the top leadership and technology talent globally and supports its clients to identify the international leadership and technology talent required to deliver on major strategic initiatives and transformations across Europe, MEA, APAC and ANZ regions. 

A company statement said: “Despite numerous approaches over the years, it was imperative for RPI owners Stuart Wilson and Julian Frankum to wait for the right fit in a company to take over the business. The MCG Group not only gave the founders an opportunity to play fundamental roles in the future growth of the business, but also proposed that RPI acts as the cornerstone investment for MCG’s ambitious five-year strategic international growth plan in the technology sector.”

MCG has nearly 300 employees across the group, offering offers recruitment, consultancy and project-based solutions within construction, education, healthcare and technology sectors in the UK and internationally. 

For the last three years, The MCG Group has been working in the interactive, digital and immersive technology industry developing one of the largest professional creative networks of clients and candidates through its brand, Creative Personnel. 

The new enlarged MCG Group is expected to deliver around £150m revenue and roughly £30m NFI in FY22, the company said.
