MVS Audio Visual announces Management Buy Out

MVS Audio Visual, a leading national audio visual & video conferencing specialist is excited to announce a significant milestone in its journey. 

After receiving numerous acquisition offers from competitors in the UK and the US, the company’s founder and CEO, Matthew Cowan, has decided to pursue a management buyout option led by Managing Director Simon Hurst. 

Over the past 9 years MVS Audio Visual has experienced remarkable growth, currently employing thirty dedicated staff members and achieving year on year growth. The company’s success can be attributed to its specialist expertise and commitment to internal development, which has fostered a passionate and long-serving team. 

Realising the potential impact of selling the business to large corporate firms, Matt commented:

“The ethos and culture at MVS has always been at the heart of our growth and success. My concern was that this would be lost if swallowed into a large corporate organisation. The management team and I have always been focussed on delivering quality work and tailored services by developing talent from within.” 

From offices in London and Dorset, MVS has built an outstanding reputation as one of the UK’s leading audio-visual installation and maintenance providers working with large scale corporates in the city, as well as nationwide and into parts of Europe.  

Determined to maintain the company’s identity and drive its future growth, a management buyout was structured under the leadership of the company’s managing director Simon Hurst who commented:

“Having worked for MVS for over seventeen years and been MD since 2019, I have supported Matt in the development and scaling up of the business.  Following discussions, we felt that a management buyout was the ideal solution for business continuity, and for me it meant pursuing a career goal which has now come to fruition. 
 
We’ve got the right team in place, exceptional levels of expertise in our field, and a reputation for being go-to specialists. With the increased use of technology in the workspace I see an extraordinary opportunity to continue to grow our market share and anticipate a bright future. Matt and I have a shared vision for further growth and this transition marks an exciting new chapter for the MVS Audio Visual team.”
