BCN Group Completes Strategic Acquisition of CMI

Monday 3rd April 2023: BCN Group, a digital transformation and IT managed services specialist, has today announced the acquisition of NewCMI, a leading MSP and Microsoft Solutions partner. This strategic move from BCN reinforces its Microsoft-first approach, building a complementary technology offering across the Microsoft ecosystem. The acquisition also brings a strategic foothold in the South East of England and Northern Ireland for BCN.


BCN is a leading digital transformation solutions and managed service provider delivering cloud-first data strategies, including Microsoft Modern Workplace, Microsoft Azure, Azure optimisation and analytics, Full Stack development, PowerPlatform, BI Data Analytics Solutions, Dynamics 365 Business Central, and Cyber Security services.

Founded in 2009, CMI is a leading MSP with offices in London, Belfast and the Thames Valley. Offering a complementary product set to BCN as specialists in Microsoft Modern Workplace, Microsoft Azure, cyber security and managed IT, the acquisition will bolster BCN’s portfolio and expand its UK base, which currently sits at 1,200.

This is the second acquisition since ECI Partners invested in BCN in 2022, following on from the purchase of Microsoft Dynamics 365 specialists, Evo-soft, in September 2022.


Rob Davies, CEO of BCN Group commented: 

“CMI’s complimentary product and service offering allows us to increase our Microsoft customer base and strengthen our team of technical experts. Importantly, the acquisition means we can take our combined technical capability to the next level, further establishing BCN as a key player among UK Managed Service Providers.”

Ken Roulston, Managing Director, CMI said:

“This is extremely positive news for our team and customers. The additional capabilities BCN Group brings will expand the support, skill set and technology available and create even stronger IT support. We are looking forward to aligning our offerings and provide our strengthened specialist support to our ever growing customer base.”
