Paris, France, April 21, 2020 -- Vocalcom, a global provider in customer experience and omnichannel contact center solutions in the Cloud, demonstrates strong ambitions with growth and reorganizes its executive committee to assist this new dynamic. This announcement goes along with the expansion of the recent « spin-off » of the company Opportunity, subsidiary of the Vocalcom Group, and is accompanied by significant investments in research and development.
In January 2020, Apax Partners, an independent investment company and majority shareholder of the Vocalcom Group, sold to Omnes, a player in "private equity" and infrastructure, its subsidiary Opportunity specialized in the management of digital marketing interactions as part of a primary LBO (Leveraged buy-out). In this manner, Anthony Dinis, founder of Vocalcom, became president and shareholder of Opportunity while remaining an important shareholder of the Vocalcom Group. Carlo Costanzia remains the CEO of Vocalcom, a role which he occupies since July 2016.
This disposal of assets marks a decisive turning point in the growth strategy of the group. Driven by the support of Apax Partners, which confirms its engagement in Vocalcom’s development, the company is investing massively in innovation in order to concentrate on the heart of its business, publisher of technological solutions for contact centers.
