Palladium Heritage, a lower middle-market investment arm of Palladium Equity Partners, has made an investment in Southwest Strategies, a public outreach and communications firm.

Southwest Strategies offers communications strategy and outreach support to the public sector and private companies across a range of industries including energy, transportation, water, retail, housing, professional sports and real estate development. The company has helped build over $20 billion in infrastructure projects in California since its formation in 2000.

“We believe this investment positions Southwest Strategies for further growth, particularly in light of infrastructure investments in the U.S. projected for the coming years,” says David MacDonald, a principal at Palladium Heritage.
