"Our new owners, whose average age is 43 years old, bring vitality and passion to help grow SullivanCurtisMonroe in the decades ahead. We need to look no further than our own backyard, or should I say corner office, to find the talented individuals with the ability to build upon our foundation of business in this region," said William Curtis, founder and chairman.
"We recognize the importance of promoting within, rather than looking outside, to help grow in an industry that has seen its share of mergers and acquisitions. Our new owners will continue to honor the company's long tradition of remaining privately held and will also keep an eye on the long-term, not just the quarterly, earnings," said John Monroe, president and chief executive officer.
