Add-On Acquisitions

“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.”
