Woolpert president and CEO Scott Cattran, said, “The vision we set for our company in 2015 was to become the premier global AEG and one of the best companies in the world. Since then, Woolpert has been designated as a ‘Great Place to Work’ for five years in a row and doubled in size – adding multiple offices across the United States, Canada, and Africa. Now, at the beginning of our third strategic plan, we are focused on expanding our vision with a strategy to become a billion-dollar revenue company. With our MSD partnership, we have the experience, capital, and culture to assure we get there in the right way. The future is incredibly bright for Woolpert clients and employees and I look forward to sharing our continued story of success.”
“Woolpert fits seamlessly with MSD Partners’ strategy of partnering with talented management teams and investing in companies which are stable, well-positioned in attractive markets, and poised for continued growth. The company has demonstrated excellent organic growth and been an active acquirer of strategically complementary firms.” said Kevin Brown, co-head of MSD Partners’ private capital group.
