TWO former e-business advisers who followed their own counsel and set up an online company have now staged a six-figure takeover of a thriving multimedia firm.
Kate Little and John Cavanagh helped hundreds of fledgling firms to develop business websites and e-retailing enterprises, while working as specialist advisers with Business Gateway.
Now they have realised their own business ambitions by masterminding a deal to buy Edinburgh-based Channel 6 Multimedia, with plans to grow its impressive client list.
Kate said: “We both loved our jobs advising other people how to run successful web-based businesses. However, it soon became clear that we both wanted to take it a step further and make a go of it ourselves.
“We set up our own internet marketing company, Com.Motion, almost three years ago and from there we developed strong links with Channel 6.
“When the chance came up to takeover such a healthy and respected business it was far too good an opportunity to pass up. We now have a team in place to really make huge strides forward.”
Two existing staff with Channel 6 have also taken equal financial stakes as part of the takeover.
