FMI Capital Advisors was the exclusive financial advisor to CCC for this transaction.

Chris Formanek, President of CCC, said, “Our success and growth are a direct result of our employees thinking and acting like owners to deliver the best customer experience for our clients. We believe employee ownership is an advantage in recruiting and retaining some of the best employees in the marketplace. This transaction will allow CCC to pursue sustainable growth and allow our employees to share in the direct success of the company.”
Added Matthew Drake, Managing Director at FMI Capital Advisors, “My colleague John Steinegger and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome, both for the company’s employees and its founding former owners. We were grateful to act as advisors for such an important transaction and are excited to watch where CCC’s new employee-owners take the company next.”
