The firm, based at Park Square, Cheadle, has been bought from ISIS by Inflexion Private Equity. It employs more than 200 people, having doubled in size over the past two years. On the Beach is led by chief executive Simon Cooper and provides flights, car hire, insurance, airport parking and hotel accommodation at popular beach holiday destinations in Europe as well as at resorts in Africa, the Far East, India, the Caribbean and the US. Mr Cooper and his management team will remain at the business as part of the secondary buyout. In the year to September 2012, revenues grew 70 per cent to £230.9m and he said sales were due to come in around the £300m mark this time around. And Mr Cooper told the M.E.N he now plans to kick-off an international expansion drive, which will create a further 30-50 jobs and send revenues soaring to more than £500m over the next three years.
