Parcel2Go is led by Executive Chairman James Greenbury, who said: "We are delighted to be able to deliver an early Christmas present to lots of our employees that are part of the share scheme. Its testament to the family that we created that they have chosen to continue the journey with us.
"In Mayfair, we have found the ideal equity partner to help us achieve our long-term ambitions and we look forward to working closely with the Mayfair team."
Daniel Sasaki, managing partner of Mayfair Equity Partners, said: "Price comparison websites have become part of consumers' everyday lives and parcel delivery services is one of the fastest growing categories within it.”
