Galanthus Partners has acquired UK-based BPD Zenith, a global enterprise asset management cloud provider and IBM Maximo business partner. BPD is a client of Corum.
“This transaction was one of the most emotionally rewarding of my 35-year career in the software industry,” said Allan Wilson, Corum senior vice president, who led the deal. “It was a pleasure to work with the Founder and CEO, George Lightfoot, who had built BPD Zenith from scratch with sweat equity and no outside investment of any type. Galanthus Partners immediately recognized the value in the company and saw the opportunity to continue to build the business through organic and non-organic growth. Their partnership with the BPD management team puts BPD Zenith firmly at the heart of cutting-edge innovation with asset management and predictive asset health analytics in the cloud.”
