The Capita Story
Sir Rod Aldridge founded and led the UK’s leading outsourcing company, Capita, from its formation in 1984 until 2006.
During his time as chair the group expanded to a FTSE 100 company employing 27,000 as well as profits increasing each year to almost £200 million in 2006.
In 1987, he led the management buyout (MBO) of the group from the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) and the floatation of Capita on the unlisted securities market (USM) in 1989 valued at £8 million.
Today the organisation has over 60,000 employees and is valued at £6 billion.
