It all started in 2004 from a dining room table.

Ascot Group HQWhen Andrew Scott launched his business and marketing consultancy firm, Purplex, in 2004 he had a dream of building a world-class business. 3 years later, in 2007, he opened an office above an estate agent and took on his first employee.

Today the Ascot Group has a multi-million turnover, 80+ employees and a 7-figure balance sheet with strong liquidity. It operates from facilities in London and across 3 purpose-built offices near Bristol with over 15,000 sq ft space.

The structure was formalised in 2012 when Ascot Group (Holdings) Ltd was incorporated as a holding company, with a number of subsidiary companies, a property business and an investment arm. It is still privately owned by the founder and CEO, Andrew Scott and retains a strong family culture.
