GettingPersonal.co.uk Limited, a Manchester, UK-based online retailer which sells personalised gifts, recently received a £4m investment from ISIS Equity Partners.
Established in November 2005 by John Smith and Giles Harridge, GettingPersonal.co.uk today sells over 4,000 items ranging from personalised cards, notebooks, mugs and chocolate to non-personalised items for general gifting. The retailer sells direct to consumers through its website and in 2009 had six million visitors and recorded sales of £9.6m.
ISIS, which provided funds from the Baronsmead VCTs, will support the management to establish GettingPersonal.co.uk as the leading personalised online gifting retailer in a fast growing UK market.
In conjunction with the transaction, Steve Richards, former CEO of online flower retailer Interflora, will join the company’s board as chairman.
