Business & Tech-Enabled Services
The Ridgemont partnership was founded
We had the opportunity to get to know and trust the Ridgemont team ahead of entering the market to raise capital from outside investors. Their experience working alongside founders and approach to creating alignment and collaborative partnerships with management teams helped us gain conviction around Ridgemont as our preferred growth partner when recapitalizing our company.
What I learned really quickly about Ridgemont is that they are truly a founder, management, family-focused and enabling business.
Ridgemont has been very supportive of the build-out and implementation of our proprietary tech platform, from recruiting the right talent to rolling out across our many locations. Our new technology platform is a bold investment, but it is strategic for the business, and Ridgemont encouraged us to keep pushing forward and brought a full suite of resources to ensure the success of the project.
We first partnered with Ridgemont in 2010 and have shared much success together. They are very experienced investors in our industry and have always offered valuable insight and shared our vision for what UPN was capable of achieving through each chapter of our business.
Ridgemont is a preferred partner because of their ability to move quickly and thoughtfully. The team is a great asset to the WhiteWater franchise.
I really love what I do and value Ridgemont’s support of our legacy and our future. It is incredibly important to find a partner that is knowledgeable in the industry and respects family-run businesses.
From day one of our partnership with Ridgemont, we have all been focused on accelerating the growth of our business. Ridgemont came in with a playbook, target list of M&A opportunities and key areas for investment. There is great alignment in vision and strategy – and it’s fun!
Our partnership with Ridgemont allowed us to expand our service offering and enhance our ability to serve children with autism and other special needs. With Ridgemont’s guidance, we have put together multi-year strategic initiatives to pursue acquisitions in new markets and grow our therapeutic capabilities.
