Collections consultancy, Arum Systems has been acquired a new investment team. The deal was completed a month after Arum released its annual financials. No significant changes are planned for Arum or its management team.

Arum will continue to provide vendor independent specialist expertise.”

Experienced incoming CEO Mark Johnston added: “This deal will enable the future success and growth of the business building on the good work that has been done to date by the Arum team, continuing to focus on excellent delivery to clients whilst broadening the range of services and offerings.”
