CHICAGO, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- West Monroe, one of the fastest-growing digital consulting firms in North America, announced today it has finalized an investment from MSD Partners, L.P.

As previously announced, the capital investment from MSD Partners?a leading investment advisor founded in 2009 by the partners of MSD Capital, the family investment office for Michael Dell, Founder & CEO of Dell Technologies?will support West Monroe's strategy to establish itself as the leading digital consulting firm in North America and to expand internationally. West Monroe will use the investment to expand the firm's global product development platform via acquisitions, to advance skill-building programs for West Monroe employees to provide world-class digital consulting services, and to drive enhancements to its offerings and Intellio® suite of assets, among other strategic initiatives. 

The firm is projected to continue its rapid, above-market growth rate for the foreseeable future.

The close of the transaction also marks a new chapter for West Monroe's employee ownership journey. As a founding value of West Monroe, employee ownership has taken on different forms throughout the firm's 19-year history. The employee owners of West Monroe built significant long-term personal wealth from the shared success of the firm so far. With the next phase, current shareholders will retain a level of ownership and all West Monroe employees have the opportunity to purchase equity in the firm, continuing the firm's commitment to shared success.  

With the close of the transaction, MSD Partners holds a 50% ownership stake in West Monroe, with the remaining 50% owned by employees of West Monroe. The company is now jointly governed by a 50/50 split of representatives from MSD Partners and West Monroe leadership.
