“It was pivotal to us to transition the company to a team that would be committed to investing in the agency, growing its capabilities and reach in the years ahead and maintaining the talent and culture that makes Burrell special. Having jointly led Burrell for nearly two decades, we sought to ensure that the new ownership shared our vision, standard of values and maintained Burrell’s Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) designation.”
