Journey to Market Leadership

Our Firm

Finding the Right Fit

We are a partner of choice for families, founders, and managers. Our focus on transparency helps create an M&A strategy, build cross-functional teams to ensure seamless integration of systems and resources, and identify efficiencies so management teams can focus on growth.

“When I joined the Company shortly after Odyssey’s investment, we were immediately aligned on the vision of what we could create together as partners. The business was rebranded, and we built a team to create a unique set of products and services for our customers. This allowed us to become a global market leader and achieve terrific long-term results together.”

— Mike Kachmer, CEO, Duravant

“Our business grew enormously during the first few years of our partnership with Odyssey, but COVID caused an unprecedented downturn in our live events-focused business. Odyssey was there every step of the way as we managed through this period, providing both advice and financial resources. At the same time, they supported strategic investments in the face of adversity that have accelerated our growth opportunities as our markets have recovered. Our business is stronger than ever due to our partnership with Odyssey and we are well positioned to execute on our growth plan for the years ahead.”

— Wes Bailey, CEO, 4Wall

“Odyssey approaches buying, building and integrating businesses at a volume and velocity that we have never experienced before, and we needed to transform our own capabilities to meet their pace. Throughout the process, they have been excellent partners to us – always providing resources to support our business, but more importantly, investing in the processes, tools and people so that we have our own resources for growth. We now have an internal M&A engine that will provide growth opportunities well into the future.”

— Mike McIlwain, CEO, ATS

“I really like that  Odyssey has a team approach. I feel like I am part of their team, and it’s not just me reporting to them.”

— Bob Fickett, CEO, CPI
