Key Travel


Jamieson has advised CEO Saad Hammed and the management team of Key Travel on the acquisition of a majority stake in the business by Elysian Capital from Livingbridge.

Key Travel, which has offices in Liverpool, London, Manchester and Newcastle, was supported by Livingbridge via a management buyout in 2013. Livingbridge’s investment helped accelerate the group’s US expansion through the opening of its Philadelphia office in 2013 and the development of KT Online; its proprietary online booking tool.

Elysian Capital has now backed the company as it prepares for the “next phase of our growth journey”, with the firm set to assist Key Travel with its plans to ramp up its global presence.

The Key Travel management team were advised by Tom Burton, Andrew Cox and Jack Yang on their investment and the new management incentive plan.
