Bernhard Capital Partners Management, a private equity management firm, has purchased KC Harvey, an environmental and natural resources consulting firm.

Bernhard Capital will leverage its investment approach to build on its thesis around the ESG market.

“We are thrilled to welcome such a talented leader and industry veteran in Dirk as we employ our proven Blueprint approach to build an unparalleled national leader in environmental services and consulting,” said Jeff Jenkins, founder of Bernhard Capital. “The environmental services and consulting market continues to be fragmented and a high-growth sector with high barriers to entry. We are confident KC Harvey’s deep expertise and integrated consulting method positions it as the perfect cornerstone from which to scale and grow our platform.”
