We have a tremendous opportunity in front of us, and are confident that New Mountain Capital is the ideal partner to help us execute our strategic plan and achieve long-term business growth with excellent financial returns.”
"We believe OneDigital is a truly unique platform within the insurance distribution sector, and have been impressed with the company's exceptional culture and talent, best-in-class technology and systems, and proven leadership team," said Robert Mulcare of New Mountain Capital.
"OneDigital has a successful track record of delivering healthcare solutions and thought leadership to its customers, which is crucial to its success.
