A brief history

Celebrating our 17th year in business, CoCredo was started in 2002 as part of Wyse Leasing, and became a stand-alone company in 2005. In August 2009 a management buyout (MBO) was completed, which allowed us to assert our independence and strength as a stand-alone business away from Wyse Leasing. As part of this MBO, we changed our name from Wyse Assist to CoCredo Ltd.

The 'Credo' part of the name comes from the Latin for 'trust', and is the root word for credit with the 'Co' meaning both 'together' and 'company'. This is because we believe in working closely with our customers and we are proud to build relationships based on trust.

In March 2010 we moved our headquarters from Chesham to the prestigeous Missenden Abbey in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. This move gave us room to expand the business and grow our dedicated team.

In 2015 Dan Hancocks took over complete ownsership of the business and has since seen the company go from strength to strength.
