“This is a testament to what a significant human connection and relationship of trust can achieve, as Bill Wells, President & Owner of Mack locked arms with Oliver Blum, Managing Director & Partner of Newlook, as the transaction saw its way through several COVID-inspired delays and market and economic turmoil, only to see Mack and Newlook come out the other side without a scorch and remain committed to each other, which led to a smooth closing and the beginning of a long-lasting partnership,” said Goss.

Blum added, “We are extremely happy to be adding Mack Fire to our group of portfolio companies.  Bill Wells is an outstanding leader and we are excited about assisting him and his team in continuing to build the business, organically but also through acquisitions.”
