Brockway Moran & Partners invested in Crisis Prevention Institute in partnership with management, in November 2011. Throughout the five-year investment period, Brockway Moran & Partners worked with management to drive organic growth in the business. During this time, Crisis Prevention Institute significantly expanded its salesforce, added resources and management to the sales organization, incentivized sales of a broader portfolio of product offerings, optimized the company’s marketing department, developed a capability for enterprise-level sales, and positioned the business to capitalize on adjacent end market opportunities. The success of these initiatives resulted in robust revenue and earnings growth, and corresponding margin enhancement. Additionally, the company invested in its infrastructure, systems, and the finance function to effectively manage the expansion of the business.

In December 2016, Crisis Prevention was sold to FFL Partners and management resulting in a highly successful outcome. Brockway Moran & Partners was exceptionally pleased to partner with such a talented management team as Crisis Prevention reached new heights over the five-year investment period in its very important work.
