Our founders Ben Booth and Richard Coward worked together for over ten years at a contact centre solution reseller. They saw organisations become increasingly frustrated with providers that over-promised and under-delivered on features, support and resilience. Determined to enhance the employee and customer experience, MaxContact was formed.
Since then, the business has become one of the fastest growing contact centre specialists in the UK.
Our founders worked together
For ten years our founders sold, supported and built add-ons for third party on-premise contact center systems.
Frustration led to innovation
Knowing the solutions on the market, the lack of freedom and poor functionality led us to build our own solutions. Four years later, a lot of time, money, blood, sweat and tears, we launch MaxContact.

How we work
The way we work, together and with our clients.
We own our actions. We take responsibility for ourselves and the resulting consequences. We work as a team to support each other and promote a positive, constructive, no-blame culture.
We rely on each other to be open and honest, and to raise issues promptly. We employ clear communication to empower ourselves and our colleagues. Our clients rely on us to deliver on promises, to exceed their expectations and to have their best interests in mind in all that we do.
Together we nurture a growth culture, developing both ourselves and our business. We embrace curiosity through new ways of working, technologies and continual learning to maintain our adaptable approach.
We take pride in the quality of our work and interactions. Quality demands innovation, as we continually strive to improve our offer, the experiences of our clients, and their service users. Improvements can always be made.
Innovation, and the challenges that accompany it, are key to the success of our product, our business, our growth as a team and as individuals. Engaging an innovative mindset keeps us vigilant as we strive towards our goals.

We’re agile and empower our teams. We push through challenges, breakdown barriers and continue to make great things happen. We’re on an exciting journey and here to make our industry better.

Dan is a Partner and co-founder of FPE Capital, MaxContact’s private equity partner.
Having started his career in leveraged finance (Singer & Friedlander, RBS) providing acquisition funding to the UK mid-market private equity community, his desire to be part of the team delivering the upside, rather than just worrying about the downside, led him to jump the fence into private equity.
Over his career as a lending banker Dan led a large number of transactions across a broad range of B2B sectors. Dan is involved in all aspects of FPE’s activities, including the origination and completion of new investments and portfolio management.
Outside of work, Dan can be found watching or playing sports of all kinds, but golf, cricket and watching (winning) Welsh rugby are his passions.
Chris is an Investment Director at FPE Capital, MaxContact’s private equity partner.
After spending five years advising technology entrepreneurs and UK private equity funds at PwC, Chris jumped at the chance to join FPE’s growing investment team. Chris was excited by the opportunity to partner with management teams with ambitious long term plans.
When not in the office, Chris enjoys spending time with friends and family. He retired from his (amateur!) rugby career in favour of the slightly safer hobbies of cycling and skiing, but remains a long suffering supporter of his hometown club, Sale Sharks.
