2021 Year In Review

Parthenon had a highly active and productive 2021. Recent accomplishments include the following:

  • Five new platform investments
  • 27 add-on acquisitions at 10 portfolio companies
  • Four exits with three to strategic acquirers
  • IPO of loanDepot (NYSE: LDI)
  • 15 new C-suite executives at 10 portfolio companies, including two new CEOs
  • Seven new Parthenon employees

New Platforms


Parthenon's eighth platform investment in the integrated payments space with this investment thesis centered on opportunity to build-out B2B payment offerings and create the turnkey, market-leading eprocurement software and solutions platform for the hospitality industry.


A long-term relationship with its founder/operator culminated in a large minority investment and facilitated a generational management succession plan and positions the business to further develop and execute new growth initiatives.


Parthenon's extensive track record in wealth management (particularly accounting-focused firms) and operational resources made it the ideal partner to carve-out RSM's wealth management division and help advisors best serve their clients and position the business for growth.


Partnered with management to lead a control recapitalization of this global credit rating agency launched post-Dodd Frank and now a leader in various capital market segments; positioned to grow and take share with market tailwinds and execution prowess.

Smartdata Solutions

Control recapitalization driven by founders' desire for a value-added partner to help develop and execute a strategic plan to transform SDS into a broader business process automation platform for healthcare payers and providers.
