CrossCountry Consulting Recapitalized by Investcorp & PSP

RLH Equity Partners is pleased to announce that Investcorp, a global alternative investment firm, and Public Sector Pension Investment Board have acquired a majority ownership position in RLH’s portfolio company, CrossCountry Consulting (“CrossCountry” or “Company”) from RLH and CrossCountry management.  RLH reinvested in the recapitalization transaction, reflecting our confidence in the Company’s outstanding management team and long-term fundamental growth trends.  Looking forward, the Company is seeking to enhance its high rate of organic growth with acquisitions of focused technology consultancies and accounting advisory businesses.

Founded in 2011, CrossCountry provides accounting, finance, risk, operations, cyber, and technology-enabled transformation solutions for the Office of the CFO in public and private organizations. The Company has over 700 professionals and currently represents clients in the private equity, financial services, life sciences, real estate and hospitality sectors, among others.  Its footprint has grown significantly over the past 10 years with employees now located across the United States and globally.   

RLH Managing Directors J. Christopher Lewis and Ryan Smiley commented, “CrossCountry possesses multiple attributes that RLH seeks in our investments, including high-value professional services solutions, a history of profitable growth, and strong support from macro trends. Since RLH’s original investment in the Company, CrossCountry has delivered extraordinarily rapid organic growth while scaling an award-winning culture. These accomplishments are uncommonly paired and are a hallmark of the Company’s exceptional leadership.”  CrossCountry earned recognition from Glassdoor as among the top 50 Best Small and Medium Places to Work in the US in both 2020 (holding the #2 spot) and 2021.  Concurrently, with RLH’s guidance, the Company enhanced its sales techniques, started and built practices in cybersecurity, data analytics, and private equity advisory to diversify its revenue streams, and expanded CrossCountry’s global presence.   RLH congratulates the Company’s founders – David Kay and Erik Linn – and the entire CrossCountry organization on their achievements and looks forward to our continued collaboration.
