Thu, 26 Sep 2013The co-founder and managing director of job site CV-Library, Lee Biggins, has completed an internal buyout of the company by buying co-founder Brian Wakem’s 50% share of the business.

The eight-figure buyout is supported by a combination of personal funds, bank lending and profit from the business; no external investors are involved, a company statement says.

Biggins and Wakem co-founded the job board business in 2000. Biggins says that buying Wakem’s 50% share of the business will allow CV-Library to keep its independent title and “help us continue to grow our brand and recognition throughout the recruitment market while holding on to our core values”.
