By: VESTA Modular
"We have been competing with the BD team for years and we are very excited to have them on the VESTA side going forward," said VESTA CEO Dan McMurtrie. "Bryan and Dehn will help us solidify our presence in the South as we continue our expansion plans West of the Mississippi."
BD Founders Bryan Sulton and Dehn Smith will assume the roles of VP of Sales and VP of Accounting, respectively, tasked with the Company's westward expansion initiatives. "While we have seen significant growth in our business over the past few years, we are really excited to see what we can accomplish with the support of the broader VESTA enterprise,"
With this acquisition, VESTA continues its rapid growth strategy by adding approximately 350 modular units and supplementing its new branch location in Dallas, TX. All BD employees will join the VESTA team. Customers of BD will experience a seamless transition to VESTA as the companies integrate over the coming weeks. Kirkland & Ellis served as legal counsel to VESTA and Alvarez and Marsal handled financial diligence. Financing for the transaction was provided by a syndicate led by Flagstar Bank.
