“We believe the podiatry space is at a clear inflection point,” said John Huhn, Managing Partner at Compass Group Equity Partners.

Podiatry Growth Partners (the “Company”), a leading management and growth partner to podiatry clinics, announced today it has secured funds from investment firms Compass Group Equity Partners, Veronis Suhler Stevenson (“VSS”), Siguler Guff, and SunGate Capital. The Company will use these new funds to accelerate its expansion into markets across the United States.

“We believe the podiatry space is at a clear inflection point,” said John Huhn, Managing Partner at Compass Group Equity Partners. “The business burden associated with managing a podiatry business continues to become more complex. Podiatry Growth Partners provides the best podiatrists with a very attractive partnership solution that allows these doctors to provide better patient care while improving their own quality of life. This investment from a premier group of investors with a long history of success in healthcare will deepen the Company’s ability to scale to new markets.”

“Podiatry is changing,” said Jeff Stevenson, Managing Partner of VSS. “We have no doubt that, like our other healthcare sub-specialty investments in endodontics and behavioral health, the podiatry space is consolidating. For podiatrists and investors alike, there are clear benefits to scale. We are excited to support David Weiss and the Podiatry Growth Partners team as they build the leading private equity-backed, multi-site podiatry practice management business in the country.”

“The Podiatry Growth Partners team could not be more pleased with the esteemed roster of financials sponsors we have attracted,” said David Weiss, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “As Podiatry Growth Partners continues to build its business and attract podiatry clinics of all sizes to its platform, we are excited to be able to tap into the experience and resources of Compass Group, VSS, Siguler Guff, and SunGate Capital for their support.”
