Dez Derry

As Founder and CEO of Blume, Dez Derry has grown the business from a fledgling start-up to a fast growing, multi-million-pound, tech-enabled service provider.

Over the past year, Dez has led Blume through two rounds of private equity funding, completed its first acquisition, doubled in headcount and turnover, and set out a strategic plan for turnover to reach £30 million by 2024.

In November 2023, Blume completed a landmark deal with PE giant Sun European Partners, in a move to further accelerate its growth in the legal services market by partnering with a strong capital partner with access to over £8bn in funds.

This followed hot on the heels of Dez’s first round of private equity funding from Rockpool Investments, which helped fast-track Blume’s ambitious growth plans and acquisition programme. The funding provided additional capital to expand its technology and product offering, organically and via strategic acquisitions.

Things have come a long way since Blume started as mmadigital in 2012 – a one-man full-service digital marketing agency building websites, creating video content, and delivering multi-media campaigns for law firms.

Dez is extremely proud to be heading up one of the UK’s leading customer acquisition specialists in the legal services space. A trusted partner to over 150 law firm clients and employer of a multi-skilled team of more than 100 people with offices in West Didsbury and Liverpool.
