Vivify is thrilled to announce that as of today Vivify has been acquired by Gryphon Investors, a leading private equity firm focused on profitably growing and competitively enhancing middle-market companies in partnership with experienced management.
We sought out a new owner who appreciates and understands the business and is keen and capable of developing our future potential through financial, strategic and operational support. The employees of the business support the sale and are positive about the future under new ownership while maintaining our unique culture and excellent service levels to you.
Our operations will be “business as usual” without any major changes planned, but the new owners will be seeking your feedback to identify how we can create additional value for you. Gryphon recognizes the goodwill created through our existing customer relationships and shares our goal of protecting that value by working hard to exceed your expectations.
