Now, at the beginning of our third strategic plan, we are focused on expanding our vision with a strategy to become a billion-dollar revenue company. With our MSD partnership, we have the experience, capital and culture to assure we get there in the right way. The future is incredibly bright for Woolpert clients and employees, and I look forward to sharing our continued story of success.”

“Woolpert fits seamlessly with MSD Partners’ strategy of partnering with talented management teams and investing in companies which are stable, well-positioned in attractive markets and poised for continued growth.
